"A&E in the Teen Cubicle"

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

Yesterday, I came down with a pathetic case of tinnitus and vertigo, and so I was rushed to Frimley Park Hospital A&E and into the children's waiting room. There, a kind nurse brought me a sick bowl as she could clearly see that I was in distress and was put in the teen cubicle. The nurses and doctors and all the staff I met with were so lovely. A doctor came and took great care of me. I was made sure that I was completely comfortable in the cubicle and I feel as though the checks were very thorough. I could hear all the other children around me being treated and the atmosphere was wonderful. Regardless of how distraught a child became, the staff were on hand to make sure that everything was okay. And soon, I felt so comfortable in this foreign environment. It is obvious that the staff really know what they are doing and they do it well. Even after 5 hours they were all so lovely and bright and cheery, even at 10:30pm, they were going strong. And when I left, I was very upset because I didn't get the chance to thank my doctor and the other staff for helping me because they were busy, but I hope maybe they will see this. So I just want to say thank you. :)
