I attended A&E after having chest pains - I was Triaged almost immediately and then taken round to Major treatments quickly.
The Staff Nurse was polite, professional - working quickly explaining what they were doing and was exceptionally proactive (Doing a second ECG as they knew that the Doctor would ask for one, saving valuable time)
The Treating Doctor explained everything - from what they were looking for from the tests they were doing, and the other possible causes of the pain.
In the end the tests showed that I thankfully hadn't suffered a Cardiac Episode :)
Thank you to the entire team at QA - You do a fantastic job, under often trying circumstances.
