"Very fortunate to be cared for by Southend ..."

About: Southend Hospital

What I liked

They saved my life and, for where possible, kept me out of pain whilst doing . I found the nurses to be insanely busy, which may be why they did not have much time for conversation. Overall though, they saw me through a very difficult time and at no stage did they 'neglect' me.

My sincere thanks to all involved.

What could be improved

I would have liked more information, for instance: being told what drugs I was being given and why. It would also have been good to know more about my illness and the path it took.
