"Professionalism of nurses at A&E?"

About: Charing Cross Hospital

My partner was admitted to A&E today feeling poorly. He had a stroke in December 2014. The nurse who cared for him immediately told him it looked like a stroke distressing him greatly. Next thing this member of staff said was - eat 8 eggs a day and in two months you will be better. We were so shocked we first thought it was a poor joke. Further interaction showed it clearly wasn't. I would refrain from any further comments.
