"Avoid A&E if you can"

About: Stafford Hospital

Why people campaign for this dept to be kept is beyond me. Ambulance patients stuck in main waiting area; no privacy at chec kin; cubicle stunk of urine and bed had urine stain on sheet; no relevant dr/consultant there. Bad experience.

Response from Head of Patient Experience, Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust

I am sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied when accessing our A&E service recently. I apologise for the fact that your experience was poor. We really try hard to improve our services based on the comments we receive from our patients

We would like the opportunity to discuss your experiences more fully and to apologise in person. I would therefore appreciate it if you would be willing to contact the PALS department on 01785 887684.

Kind Regards

Angela Grocott
