"First Class treatment"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

Late Sunday evening 25th January my wife appeared to have a seizure of sorts at home in Tunbridge Wells. A paramedic arrived within a minute or two and following extensive tests the patient decided to visit A&E in Pembury. An ambulance arrived within minutes of the call. The ambulance staff were pleasant and efficient and conveyed the patient to A&E where tests were carried out promptly and with care. Fortunately treatment allowed for full recovery and, after about three hours, the patient was able to return home. Hospital visits are not the most pleasant of experiences but thank goodness Pembury A&E was to hand.
