We were on holiday in Bournemouth when I was suddenly taken ill with suspected meningitis. Once we arrived in A&E we were seen straight away. We were given a dark side room as I had photophobia and our care was outstanding. I was given pain relief and when it didn't work the nurse made sure I was given more until the pain calmed. I was seen by two different doctors who both carried out thorough examinations. It was very busy there but I felt really well looked after and not once did I feel I was neglected. The nurses and doctors were amazing and if I ever get taken I'll again I hope it's in Bournemouth!
