"Thank you Bedford A&E - 9/10/2015"

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

I just wanted to say thank you so much to the Paramedics and the A&E Team who looked after me at Bedford Hospital.

I was rushed in the early hours with Gastroentitus and it was a scary experience as my blood pressure had dropped, I was very cold and was out of it most of the time.

Not being a fan of Drs, Hospitals, needles etc. my confidence was uplifted after the care, empathy and treatment they gave to me.

There was a sense of calmness and control and the nursing team made time for me and I felt safe which is not a feeling I usually have in these places.

Within 4 hours I was allowed to go home so a huge thank you to the team and especially to the Acting Sister Nurse who was so nice with me and for another nurse who was so gentle when taking my bloods and for bringing me more blankets to get warm!

Thank you X
