"amazing staff!"

About: Newham General Hospital

I am currently under going chemotherapy and ended up at A & E as my temp was high.I was seen within 10 mins,had every test going and was admitted.

I stayed in for a total of five days.On the 3rd day my hair decided to fall out which I wasn,t prepared for.I was on Plashet ward and the nightshift Nurse dried my tears ,combed out my hair,changed my bedding and offered to stay with me with a cup of tea. The nurse popped into to say bye at the end of every one of their night shifts- amazing ,Above and Beyond !

Response from Newham General Hospital

Thank you for writing such a lovely review about you time in our A&E and on Plashet Ward. It is sad to hear that you had to attend our A&E but also reassuring that you were well cared for by our staff.

We have passed your comments over to the A&E team and to the staff on Plashet Ward as they will love to hear them.

Wishing you all the best
