About: John Radcliffe Hospital John Radcliffe Hospital Oxford OX3 9DU
I went to A&E as per advice given by 111 following a wasp sting to the back of my head. I must say the staff were excellent and very efficient despite the long waiting times which are typically to be expected in a busy A&E department.
The only thing that made me feel a bit uncomfortable was that the triage nurse and doctor refused to give me anything for the pain I was experiencing. Other than this, I felt reassured and in safe hands as I was given a thorough assessment and excellent home care tips before I was discharged.
The reception staff were also very friendly and professional and they made me feel very welcome and comfortable throughout my time in A&E.
Please pass on my thanks and concerns about pain relief. Thank you.
