"A&E then admission to Kingsmoor"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Went to A&E Sat night with severe abdominal pain and fever. All staff very caring, thorough and efficient. They explained all tests, procedures and results. Spent night in CDU, my wife worried there was no bed alarm but Nurse stayed watching over us all night.

I was particularly impressed that tests like x-ray, ultrasound and CT Scan were carried out at the weekend, to speed my diagnosis and recovery.

Subsequently admitted to Kingsmoor ward on IV antibiotics and pain-killers for 4days, now having prompt outpatient follow-up. Would like to thank all staff for their exceptional care.
