"Good care, very kind staff."

About: Kettering General Hospital

My elderly grandma received brilliant care on the 1/2/15 by medical staff in a&e, and brilliant nursing and medical care on MAU, discharge lounge and ambulatory care. A long wait in a&e awaiting a medical bed was unfortunate. It was disappointing that there wasn't a back-up plan for elderly people during long waits to keep them comfortable and warm.

Response from Kettering General Hospital

Thank you for your positive feedback regarding your grandma’s care at Kettering General Hospital. I apologise if your wait was long in A&E. Unfortunately there are times when a long wait is unavoidable. The A&E department do try to offer blankets to our patients for warmth and comfort and I am sorry if this was not the case for your grandma. I will ensure your comments are shared with the team.
