"AMU West"

About: Basildon University Hospital / General surgery

I stayed in AML west a few nights at the end of September after having pains in my right abdomen. Initially they suspected my appendix but after a couple of scans it turned out to be a ruptured ovarian cyst. I was so impressed by the doctors and nurses and also the porters- everyone was so hard working and professional. My care couldn't have been better. At times the doctors & nurses were literally rushed off their feet & not even taking their breaks but that did not effect their work. I'm still in pain having been discharged but I believe this is normal. The staff are a credit to the hospital. Thank you so much for caring and looking after me so well. Much appreciated. Regards Natalie
