So grateful to all the staff here – I visited A&E and was seen incredibly quickly (even though I came over the Christmas period when I can imagine staffing is difficult). The receptionist, nurse and doctor were all brilliant, very kind and empathetic. A big thank you!!

They’re all great in the radiology department, friendly, efficient, and relatively short time from referral to appointment, and report back with GP again relatively quickly. And all that while they’re under the current NHS general underfunding understaffing (thanks to the Tories) pressures! Thank you all very much.

Why five stars? Well the NHS service is luck of the draw, if it is not busy, it is very good. You have to be ready to wait if you are not a referral. The Five Stars are for service and care. The A&E staff were fantastic, they were calm, …
