About: Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland SR4 7TP
I visited A&E via ambulance on the evening of Boxing Day 2013. Although I was in a lot of pain and struggling to breathe and the out of hours emergency team had advised I needed to attend A&E I was reluctant to do so given the publicity around inappropriate attendances. The staff were excellent, very professional and attentive and reassured me that I had acted appropriately and never once was I made to feel I shouldn't be there. I was assessed, x-rayed and observed all very efficiently and managed very well clinically whilst being treated with empathy throughout. As this is my local hospital I was delighted with the level of care I received and wouldn't hestitate to recommend CHS to my friends and family. Well done CHS, in these times of often adverse publicity I am proud you are my hospital.
