"Excellent care in a very busy time over the holiday period"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I was taken to A&E at ESH recently, I was suffering with extreme abdominal pain and was seen within 30 mins staff were polite and professional and caring at all times. They kept me informed at all times, I stayed in A&E for approx 20 hours, even though the department was very busy I still felt that I was being cared for in a professional manner. I was then moved onto a ward and was treated so well staff could not do enough for me, even at such a busy time they were fantastic. When the press are running down the NHS as they are at the moment I would like to express how impressed I was with the service I received from East Surrey Hospital and its staff especially the nursing and auxiliary staff.

Thank you ESH due to your treatment I recovered quicker and freed a bed up for another patient.

Dear 'lookedafterand better'

Thank you for your feedback, I am pleased to hear that you have recovered. The hospital has been very busy in the last few weeks but it is always our priority to care for all our patients safely and with kindness and compassion. I will ensure that the Emergency Department are aware of your review and thanks. Best wishes
