"High level of professionalism in A&E"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Slashed my wrist open, arrived at A&E at 1645hrs and was seen within 20 minutes, I was discharged by 1845hrs with 'steristrip' stitches all within 2hours, great service and a great pity other hospitals can't/don't offer this level of professionalism.

I can't praise East Surrey enough, many thanks and I am NOT planning another visit! ! !
