"Gave me confidence in the NHS"

About: The Great Western Hospital

What I liked

I turned up at Casualty at 3.30 AM on 24 Dec with breathing difficulty symptoms. My first experience of an NHS Hospital. There followed a sequence of examinations and tests including X Rays and a Scan, Was transferred to Linnet Ward. Seen by a consultant and was able to go home in the evening. Subsequent follow up with my GP and Hospital Consultant has been excellent. Teamwork and care has been really good from porters upwards.
