"Excellent treatment from a quality service to..."

About: Worthing Hospital

Had the unfortunate luck of spending Friday evening at Worthing A&E with my mother who had a horrible fall outside a hotel she was staying that required calling an ambulance and a trip to A&E. My mum was in great pain & shock, but the kindness & professionalism shown to her from all the staff was incredible. Ambulance crew, admin/reception staff, nurses & consultants are a credit to the NHS and a wonderful example of what the institution stands for. A & E were having to serve all manner of weird & wonderful patients, during our visit and they treated all clients with dignity & respect, even though they some were swearing & shouting and nagging the staff during their very shift.
