"Excellent hospital"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

Anything else?

my husband had a stroke at age 37yrs. He saw 3 consulants within 20 mins of arriving - A and E, radiology and stroke. My pre school children who were with me were cared for by a nurse auxillary while my husband and I had a conversation with the consultant. He had treatment and was transferred up to the stroke ward soon after.

Response from Royal Derby Hospital

Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback following your husband and your recent experience when recently attending at our Hospital. Although the information is limited, I was pleased to note that you feel your husband was seen quickly and attended to by appropriate staff in a timely manner. If you would like to expand on this experience, we are currently undertaking a project whereby patients, family members of carers come in to hospital and discuss their experience (either positive or negative) with me and with consent, this discussion is recorded onto a DVD and utilised in staff training and various other ways. if you feel this might be something you would like to do, then please contact me on Derby (01332) 786636 and we can discuss this further. Once again, many thanks for your feedback and please may I take this opportunity to wish you and your family my best wishes and I do hope your husband is recovering well following the traumatic events he has recently experienced. Kind regards Miss Deborah Furness Member of the Patient Experience Team for the Derby Hospitals N HS Foundation Trust
