"Staff were brilliant"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

I was referred to A&E by my doctor after having abdominal pain for a week. Although you have to be patient due to the amount of people attending A&E, the staff were courteous, polite and very helpful. I was at A&E for about 5 hours, but I ended up having blood test, x-ray and a ultrasound scan; I was diagnosed with a gall stone and will have to have my gallbladder removed in the near future.
