"Most impressed"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / Accident and emergency

I was brought to A&E by ambulance early one morning in July suffering from chest pain and previous shortness of breath.

I was seen within minutes by nursing and medical staff who could not have been more efficient, kinder or more reassuring..

When cardiac problems were ruled out I was quickly X rayed and found to have a pneumothorax.

This was treated and I was then admitted to EAU.

There I was given every consideration by medical and nursing staff .

During the three days I was on the ward I was well looked after and mostly kept informed about my condition.

The consultant, doctor and nurses were friendly and professional.

My subsequent OPD and X Ray appointments were all efficient, with little waiting and assistance available when necessary. I cannot speak too highly of

Grantham hospital.
