"Short stay via A&E"
About: Derriford Hospital Derriford Hospital Plymouth PL6 8DH
After choking on food on Christmas Eve I was admitted via A&E for an endoscopy on Christmas Day. Staff were superb, kind and considerate throughout but the whole stay was exhausting partly due to the repetitive questions in the admissions proforma as I was passed from A&E to the Ward and then to Theatre. I was also promised hydration via drip and mild sedation for the endoscopy, but neither materialised.
