"Great treatment"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I attended the County at 4am Friday morning with severe abdo pains. The A&E department immediately addressed the pain and undertook blood tests and a scan. Thereafter, I was transferred to SMEA (?) where a further examination was undertaken. The staff seemed to work well as a team including a nurse, a trainee doctor, their supervisor and the Consultant.

The facts were checked to ensure a proper analysis.

The Consultant acknowledged they were not a gastro specialist but explained the diagnosis.

Great professionalism by all concerned.

I was discharged at 2pm the same day with no further pain or concerns.

Brilliant support - thank you very much !
