"Just wanted to say thanks to A & E staff"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Just wanted to state that arrived A & E at 12pm with OH and Drs letter, was seen straight away and triaged.

Given fluids, bp, ekg and awaited blood tests all within an hour, had to wait to recheck bp and was out by 2.30pm.

All the staff from the Nurses, Health assistants and Doctor were great and efficient. Shame the GP surgerys could not provide this service and would save A & E wasted visits.

Nothing wrong found except stress. It was so calming in there :) as there was no waiting.

If I had to wait for 4 hours OH would be on his own.

I would not attend an A & E unit without a Drs letter or in a dire emergency.
