"I was admitted to A&E around ..."

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to A&E around 5.30am on a Saturday morning i had to wait till about 7.00am to be seen by a doctor in a side room, by the way there was only 2 of us waiting in the waiting room. i was given a thorough examination having everything explained to me. I was then transferred to a Cubicle awaiting to see a surgical Doctor who Diagnoised a Appendicitus having signed the Consent form i was taken to Ward 4, on seeing the consultant it was decidede to treat me differently. The Nurses on ward 4 where most Proffesional and efficient not only to me but to the rest of the patients in my room. The ward was cleaned every day,it was a pleasure to stay there, they earned every penny they are paid if not more, its a job could never do please pass on my Thanks.

What could be improved

Its seems to me A&E could have been quicker but as not beng in the Proffesion well i cant judge that guess they have lots of paper work. Dont we all.
