"A and E visit. Sunday afternoon"

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute)

Feeling quite unwell so visited A&E Northampton for first time ever emergency. Seen after waiting just over an hour. Had contact with 4 doctors. Three were excellent, friendly and caring. One was unimpressive and wore no identifying uniform or badge. Poor. All nurses were great especially one. Cheerful and comptetent. Lots of tests all negative. Turned out to be dehydration. Lesson learned. Impressed. Decent nice people doing a good job.
