"very positive experience"

About: Weston General Hospital

I was taken to a&e by ambulance suffering from extremely bad tummy pain. I was taken straight through to a cubicle. The pain intensified followed by volient vomiting, the staff rushed to my aid andquickly arranged bloods and xrays. The results quickly came back and I was taken to the surgical aassessment unit where the staff couldnt do enough for me. They made sure I had every pain relief I could have. Beung the first time in this situation I was very scared and upset byt the staff were amazing with me, gental, caring and had time to sit with me explaining everything or just listening to my fears. I was taken to hutton ward where I spent two weeks. Again, I cannot praise the staff enough, they were fantastic with me. Even housekeeping were amazing, very helpful and friendly. the consultants were brilliant and very patient with me, listening to what I wanted and willing to try other methods before surgery. The ward was mostly occupied by older people who needed a lot of care and the staff were fantastic and very patient witn them. Nothing was too much trouble. I cannot praise the staff enough. Thank you to you all.
