"A & E"

About: William Harvey Hospital

The A & E on Sunday morning was, as ever, rammed, but I would like to thank the two doctors and nurse who dealt with the aftermath of my cycle crash. My care was prompt, decisive and compassionate despite the seeming mayhem all around. Thank you. PS. Nurses should be allowed whatever hair colour they choose!

Response from Julie Pearce, Chief Nurse + Director of Quality + Operations, East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for your feedback and I am glad that we have been able to care for you well despite the pressures being experienced in A&E at the moment. The rising demand for services is outstripping the A&E environment as it was designed, staff really do their best under difficult circumstances.
