"My A and E experience"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I injured my finger that wouldn't stop bleeding and attended A&E at Grantham. The staff are excellent but the environment of a&e is a bit of a shock with not much seating in the waiting area, most broken. And the treatment rooms are ill equipped i feel. With the desk that I sat at being old and unhygienic. I understand that people are responsible for the damage but sometimes leaving areas like this isn't condusive to people caring about the way they behave.

Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Tilly,

I’m pleased that the treatment you had from the staff was good and this will be shared with the A&E team.

We are aware that we have some environmental issues in the department which we are addressing. Its helpful to have a patient perspective and observations to support us in our plans to improve the department.
