"Faultless acute care"

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

I was in the region on holiday and suddenly became feverish without warning. At home I would have gone to my GP, but I went to Cheltenham A&E. I was seen by the triage nurse within about one minute and sent straight to bed. I was immensely impressed by the competence and care I received. I really wanted to just get home, but the staff talked me into staying in for 48 hours and gave me intravenous antibiotics. I didn't realise until I did finally leave and read the infection up for myself just how ill I had been and how wise they were. My thanks to them all!
