About: Royal Derby Hospital

I cannot shout loud enough how fantasic the A&E department is at this Hospital. This is not my closest A&E department, but because of its fantastic care I really don't mind the extra 15min it takes me to get there. Its is clean, the staff are caring and friendly and show alot of empathy in which other hospitals ive attended lack. I was seen and fully treated within a hour and a half. I sustained a bad soft tissue injury to my knee. The only complaint I can make is the full length leg brace they gave me will not stay in place.But they do not have anouther alternative.
