"A and E Visit For Chest Pains."

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

31st May 2014. 7.45 am. Went to the Aand E Department with chest pains. Sat in the waiting area for a couple of minutes, then went through to the department, to be seen to. From start to finish, in every department, with all members of staff I was really looked after, from the Nurses, to the Doctors, to the Porters, even the Lady that brought me lunch, tea and supper, I can ony say that the treatment and care was 5 star deluxe. I couldn't have been looked after any better. Was at the Hospital 12 hours, they wouldnt let me go home until they were sure I was ok. As it turned out, it was just chest pain! But what treatment. Many thanks to everyone that looked after me. Brilliant Staff and Hospital!
