"visit to A & E following falls and care in general"

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital / Accident and emergency

I suffer from MSA so I fall over a lot and can (and do) damage myself.

Following more falls on holiday last week I was advised by your physio. dept to get checked in A & E.

I attended 22 Sept and received first class treatment.

Receptionist, triage, doctor and X-ray all very professional, efficient and above all caring.

Must mention a particular junior doctor who was great with splendid interpersonal skills.

I seem to have to rely on you guys at Hinchingbrooke a lot lately and I must record that I have had treatment today and over the past 18 months that money could not buy.

As both in patient and out patient you have provided care of the highest standard.

A big thank you to all involved in my care.

Must mention the catering as well, first class, even my husband enjoyed finishing off what i left.

I know he sent notes of appreciation back to your kitchen.

Also the hospital feels good, the refurbishment and decoration provides a welcoming, clean and efficient atmosphere.

Friends who have visited from other areas of the UK confirm these views.

Again a big thank you and keep it up as I may well need your help again (I hope not but I have this progressive if rare condition).

I know that my son entered positive feedback on your ambulance service and paramedics in January.

Do hope I have not left anyone out. To the CEO you have done a fine job improving the hospital and are building a great teal there.
