"My faith in the NHS has been restored."

About: Conquest Hospital

Visited A&E after being hit in the chest with a scaffold pole. I fully expected the visit to last the usual 5 hours which I have experienced previously, however I saw a nurse within 15 minutes, had an ECG shortly afterwards then had an X-ray a few minutes later. The doctor was brilliant, very professional and a really nice person and diagnosed me with a fractured sternum which should heal in a few weeks. My visit lasted around hour and a quarter and I left thinking was that really the Conquest. My faith in the NHS has been completely restored and I'd like to thank all the nurses and the doctor who treated me so efficiently.
