"I was taken to A&E at Calderdale ..."

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was taken to A&E at Calderdale Royal Hospital after a seizure last month. It was the first seizure I'd had for 21 months. I could not rate my experience at the hospital any more highly. I was seen immediately, given the best care possible from the doctor and nurses and looked after in a caring and compassionate manner. The dept was very clean, as were all the staff who were extremely nice, friendly and cheerful. I would score each and every aspect of the A&E dept as 10 out of 10, without question. I could go on and on but it isn't really necessary because everything I write will be the same - absolutely brilliant, thank you very much to everyone!

What could be improved

Absolutely nothing - the A&E dept is the best of the best.

Anything else?

The paramedics who took me to Calderdale Hospital were wonderful too. I'd like everyone concerned to know that their efforts in looking after me were extremely appreciated.
