"Very frightening but the nurses and doctors werea..."

About: William Harvey Hospital

What I liked

The care taken and given to me whilst there

What could be improved

I dont look for improvements I was ill and taken very good care off that is all I asked for and got it is a hospital not a holiday hotel

Anything else?

My entire stay starting from AAU then EAU and then Kings B was at all times excellent regarding treatment and the staff from the lowest job description right up to a consulant. I suffer horrible panic attacks which kick in if I feel pain That very early morning of the Wednesda .y 10th October 2012 was horrible for me and upsetting for personal reasons. Everyone including the ambulance drivers were all so very kind and caring I am not myself at the best of times when in hospital I have been in and out of them many times since I was a child My special thanks goes to the nurses of Kings B Ward I cannot say enough to praise them.Would you be so kind as to pass on to all of the a huge thank you .....I will try to get up there and personally thank thank them I owe everyone who cared for me a big debt of gratitude I will not poor scorn on anything at the Hospital I worked there many years ago and know the system very very well and understand the stress ,hard work they all do each and every day

many many thanks to you please pass this on to kings b please
