About: William Harvey Hospital

My husband was admitted to A&E from Ashford International Hotel where we were staying for the weekend. He was having continuous spasms in his back owing to a fall he'd had 4 days prior to us travelling from our home in North Licolnshire to Ashford.

He was treated immediately to help reduce the excruciating pain he was in, followed by an X Ray & ultra sound which confirmed 2 broken ribs & fluid on his left lung.

The staff were very efficient & professional throughout my husbands stay.

The consultant was very approachable which helped immensely towards reassuring us throughout the treatment my husband was given .

We can't praise him & the staff enough for the service we had been given at a very distressing time. Thank you very much.
