I attended A and E 27th July 2014, I had been suffering tonsillitis and was in quite a lot of pain, unable to swallow and generally feeling ill. The Nurse and Doctor who treated me were absolutely fantastic, the nurse put me at ease as I was extremely tearful and panicking as I was struggling to swallow. The Doctor was so kind and did not make me feel I was wasting their time as the department was very busy. We often forget the amazing care we receive from these special people, they are underpaid and over worked but had time to make me feel so much calmer and better. Thank you so much.
