"Good work all round by everyone."

About: Alexandra Hospital

What I liked

I was hit by a car and taken to A&E at the Alex. Whole experience (well, apart from being hit by a car) was excellent, staff were friendly and easy to talk to, provided plenty of information on what they were doing and why they needed to do it, was very well looked after.

What could be improved

Dressings I was provided with for areas I was missing skin were not appropriate so that they stuck to the wounds and were extremely painful to remove!

Anything else?

Can't really fault them on the quality of care provided, the A&E seemed to be run efficiently and well, I have nothing but gratitude towards everyone there.
