"Good care in Coronary Care"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was in hospital from the 6th sept to the 13th sept. I found the consultant and the nursing care to be very good.

Sister Jean in particular was very good and very helpful, she was good at explaining things to me.

The cleanliness could have been better over my weekend stay. I saw blood on floor at one point which had been there for a while, but in fairness one of the nurses wasn't happy and had it cleaned up immediately.

The parking is a disgrace, it isn't very good that staff have to pay to park.

On one occasion my drip was supposed to have been removed on the monday, but instead it was left until the tuesday. The nurse who eventually removed it apologised to me.
