"Hospital and staff were fantastic"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Rushed to esh by ambulance with acute pain in chest and intestines, arrived and assessed immediately. Taken to brook ward for iv antibiotics and pain relief, I cannot fault the nursing staff and the consultant who arranged a cat scan which disclosed that it was diverticulitis. After intensive drugs and treatment was discharged. This hospital and all staff are fantastic I have never had any bad experience.
