I HAD to go to A&E at Southend Hospital recently. I was sent on to the A&E side ward for further tests.

Although our time in A&E, was, in all, more than 13 very long hours, the staff were absolutely brilliant, working flat out and doing their very best for everybody.  

They were rushed off their feet but you knew you were getting the very best of care. 

I was, very thankfully, discharged the next day.  

The staff looked absolutely exhausted but still found time to apologise for the time I had spent there.      

I cannot thank them enough for their marvellous care.
