"Made to feel calm, safe and in good..."

About: Northern General Hospital

What I liked

I would like to pass on my true thanks for the patience and treatment I have received from the A&E dept. at the Northern General Hospital Sheffield.

I have had a seriouse flare up of my epilepsy which at the age of 44 only started 3 years ago. The doctors and nurses (whith the exception of one who was approaching the end of her shift so she was probably knackered and can have the benefit of the doubt for saying I was faking it) were excellent! I would also like to pass on my thanks to the various ambulance crews who attended and transported me to hospital. (no diazipam next time though it makes me ill!)

I felt safe and in good hands, and these people should get double the wages they are on!

Thanks Northern General A&E.
