I have had undiagnosed atrial fibrillation for several years, but could never get to my doctor when I had an episode. On Tuesday 27th October 2015 I had another episode and was determined to get something done, and so I phoned 111 who told me to go to The Minor Injuries dept. at K & C.
On arrival at 22.00 hrs. I was immediately seen and connected to lots of wires.
I left next morning at 11.00 having seen the duty doctor and the consultant. During these few hpurs they had explained to me what was wrong and discussed which medication I should take, and when I agreed to this they obtained the necessary medication from the pharmacy. They also made sure that I knew what to do should I have any problems in the future. I fully understood all that I had been told.
During this short stay I had the best care I could have had from kind and skilful people.
The doctors, the nurses, the cleaners and the tea staff were all brilliant.
When I left, one of the nurses took me to reception and asked the person there to phone for a taxi for me.
