"A & E"

About: Leighton Hospital

My 87 year old mother received excellent treatment at A & E -due to the nature of her injury and her age she didn't have to wait as long as I've usually experienced in A & E. The treatment she received was thorough and the staff were courteous and didn't engage in 'elderspeak' . A special thank you to the First Response volunteer who came out to my Mum initially - what superb community service that is - giving of your time for a vital service.
