"Treatment for a broken arm on the evening of..."

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I was away from home (Nottingham) visiting family when I had a fall and fractured my arm just above the wrist. My husband took me to the nearest A & E where over the next four hours I was diagnosed, x-rayed and treated for the fracture. All the staff were very helpful and efficient and treated me and my husband with respect and kindness at all times. We are really appreciative of the care I had which made a stressful event bearable.

Response from Darent Valley Hospital

Dear Jill Thank you for taking the time to write this super review regarding the care and treatment you recieved at our A&E Department on Boxing Day. The staff have been informed of your kind words and wish you a speedy recovery. Hopefully fracturing your arm over Christmas didn't spoil the festivities for you too much and your journey back to Nottingham was a safe one. With best wishes The Communication Department Darent Valley Hospital
