pre and after surgery I was well cared for including being prepared for surgery so fast as a bed had literally become free forme not long before my arrival in the morning, Paul the Ward 4 manager was super quick and efficient. After my operation when I woke I was looked after well and the food and drink was better than I was led to believe. From the nursing staff to those giving me help, fantastic job you do.
I found the nursing staff extremely kind, compassionate and caring. My needs were met every step of the way. I was supported when I needed it, I received pain killers and medication when I needed it. The ancillary staff were extremely friendly. The ward was impeccably clean, food was ok the only grumble was the menu choices seemed to come around quick with the menu repeating every week. The only grumble I would have was the bathrooms on ward 40 were cluttered with equipment.
Given a 9am appointment and made to wait 6hours for a ten minute scan....wasn't kept informed about any delays. Given a buzzer that didn't work.... really dissatisfied and feeling generally disappointed.... we realise that the NHS is understaffed but this is no way to treat pregnant women with existing health problems ...please God get the women and children's center more staff or offer services elsewhere where the patients aren't going to need to bring their own tent!
