My daughter has been ill in Derby and visited their A&E dept several times with the same symptoms only to be sent home with little more than an antacid and told she has indigestion. After suffering for at least 5 months, it wasn't until she visited home in Kent and I had to take her to A&E at QEQM that we now have the correct diagnosis - gallstones.
The A&E staff were wonderful. I have the utmost respect for how they treated my daughter, kept us informed and then admitted her quickly after involving a surgical team that visited her in A&E.
The nursing staff on Cheerful Sparrows were excellent but were obviously overstretched, and not helped by the rudeness and petty moaning of some patients. However, they contined to treat everyone with dignity and respect. I applaud the nurses.
