The ED teams do a fantastic job all year round, but in November 2013, everyone's hard work was rewarded with an unprecedented number of compliments from patients.
The Emergency Medicine service received 8 separate compliments during the month, with phrases from patients and relatives such as:
"Enormously impressed with expert care and attention"
"Outstanding care from both nursing and medical staff"
"Greatly impressed with speed and efficiency"
"Terrific, clear and sensitive care provided to 14yr old son"
"Brilliant, professional and efficient"
"Can't say enough good things about your team"
It is with exceptional pride that I work with such dedicated, hard-working and talented colleagues from all disciplines, and, with the improvement work we are currently undertaking, I know we will only get better still.
Well done everyone, and have a great Christmas!
