"Excellent treatment by ambulance, TIA and all..."

About: Worthing Hospital

I would like to compliment Worthing Hospital Staff on its TIA clinic which we so desperately needed today after my husband had a TIA yesterday afternoon. We were efficiently and kindly treated by the ambulance and emergency staff immediately after the TIA in your Casualty. Eventually we were allowed to return home after extensive examination, some medication and excellent advice

At 08 30 today, we were telephoned to attend the TIA clinic for extensive tests, which were carried out with impeccable efficiency, professionalism and in a very caring manner. All the equipment was available and operated by proficient staff. We returned home this evening feeling reassured, informed and grateful. When we needed urgent medical help we received it immediately.

I will recommend your unit to other TIA patients and their families and suggest that other hospitals should model their units upon yours.

Thank you all.

Your sincerely,

Fiona.
