Considering the footfall last Tuesday evening, when I had to go to A and E, I was very pleasantly surprised by the calm, friendly and speedy booking-in process, the efficient and pleasant triage nurse and the undoubted skill of the doctor who, after 12 weeks and 3 different GPs, correctly diagnosed diagnosed my skin problem, which had almost become life-threatening. After only 6 day's of the doctor's prescribed treatment the horrific blisters on my forehead, face, chin, neck and mild body rash have miraculously disappeared! I can honestly say that after all the negative media comments, my husband and I went there with great trepidation and low expectations, only to come away feeling totally reassured. We were out of the hospital within 4 hours, having waited too for the medication to be made up. Thank you to the entire team as we arrived during a hugely busy shift. None of the staff showed any of the fatigue at what have been the end of a gruelling long day!!!
