"Could well be improved"

About: Princess Anne Hospital

Anything else?

The hospital was clean and the bays were spatious enough. Although there was some staff who appeared to be very nice, I don't think patient satisfaction was high on the list . I complained that my perfusion was painfull but nothing was done(I ended up with a bruise) and noone could help when I complained of pain at the surgery site, I was simply told to take the medicine in my own bag... Which I already had done. Anyway, after a sleepless painfull night, I was told they needed the bed and was escorted outside the bedroom by 9:45 AM. just like many hospitals productivity is highest on the list. The side effect of this new philosophy it is hospital sometimes defeat their own purpose which is patient care.
