"I was admitted to hospital on ..."

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to hospital on the 6th June 2008. Not being an in paitent before and after reading all kinds of bad press in the past about Princess Alexandra Hospital i was expecting to see a dirty Hospital with nurses that didnt really care about there paitents. I was admitted to Saunders Ward where i found the exact opposite. I have never seen such dedication from such a young staff. Everyone of those girls whist i was in Saunders Ward did not stop, i was even suprised to see that the ward had its own team of cleaners who also did not stop working or leave a single thing uncleaned, Saunders Ward is spottlessly clean down to those girls! All i can say is thanks to everyone who works on Saunders ward and cared for me i couldnt and wouldnt have recieved that care from a private hospital, all of you are a credit to the NHS.
