"Care in emergency department"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

I am a British national and have lived in Malaysia for some years. I recently came to England due to a family bereavement. I am being treated for Rheumatoid Arthritis and had a flare up leading me to need to attend the emergency department for assessment & treatment. Overall I spent 10 hours in A & E and on the Acute Medical Unit and I was extremely impressed by the professionalism; kindness and good humour displayed by all the staff I encountered. This included ancillary staff, nurses and medics. They also came across as happy working groups in both situations. Historically I have not had good experiences at Arrowe Park but this recent experience goes a good way to indicating that you have begun to turn things round. Thank you.
