"Excellent care in A and E"

About: Good Hope Hospital / Accident & emergency

I had experienced a burst varicose vein and had paramedic care at home, however I was also advised to have treatment at hospital by the ambulance crew. My daughter took me to Good Hope hospital.

The waiting area was clean and comfortable. It was easy to book in and I waited approximately 90minutes to be seen. It was a busy area with one practice nurse and doctor supported by other health care staff.

The practice nurse viewed a dressed my leg and gave medical advice to rest and elevate my leg and to see my GP for further medical support with 3days.

The staff I encountered were professional, friendly and respectful. I wanted to say thank you to them.
