"The visit was fine"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

Anything else?

On this occasion attended A&E. Wasn't sure what to expect as on another occasion I went to A&E for something else I was very dissatisfield. But this time I was desperate, nowhere else was open for help and I was in excruitiating pain and you forgive and forget everything when you are in such pain!

Although there were other patients waiting to be called though in reception, I got called through immediately it must have been in view of the symptoms.

I was there a couple of hours where they ran several tests. There are a bit of waiting around to do I suppose it is expected, but the staff were very nice.

However, they didn't find anything wrong so I wasn't given any treatment or medication just advice what to do if it happens again ie seek help. I don't know why I was in such pain but it did go eventually and I was glad to be seen.
