"Visit to A&E"

About: Southend Hospital

I went to A&E at 4.20.am Thursday 14 January at 04.44 with chronic sciatica/bursitis. The receptionist was very kind and offered me a wheelchair. I found the Triage Nurse extremely sympathetic kind and helpful.

I could not wish for better treatment.

I was seen by the doctor at 6am who was very helpful and kind and prescribed me different medication. The doctor certainly put my mind at rest.

I felt much happier when I left.

Thank you to all the staff once again.
