"Excellent treatment in the McGill Unit"
About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital Royal Hampshire County Hospital SO22 5DG
After telephoning 111 on Saturday morning my wife was referred to the Out of Hours Service at The Royal Hampshire where she was seen after a very short wait and then admitted to the McGill Unit. I waited with my wife and although it was about four hours before she was seen by a doctor in the meantime she was very well looked after by the nursing staff. She was also given an ECG and blood tests. She was eventually seen by a duty doctor, with whom we were very impressed. He was very polite and listened patiently and attentively to my wife's answers to his questions and then gave a very clear explanation of his diagnosis of the problem. After discussion with a consultant they decided to keep my wife in over night for further monitoring and she was discharged this morning. During my long wait yesterday I could not help but notice the caring way in which patients were treated by the medical and nursing staff.
