"Wonderful Medical Care"

I found the medical care to be excellent. From the Consultants to the Nursing Staff. I would recommend every time for this. Everything was explained, and you were made to feel that you mattered. The nursing staff were efficient friendly and caring. I was very glad I went there.
Down side was, 1. The noise on the ward late at night. Obviously the telephone and nursing station I do not include in this, but when it gets to 11. 15, and there are two televisions blaring away, both showing different programmes, I found that to be unacceptable. This was not every night, but a couple was too much.
2. Food, I likened to 1950's school dinners, stodgy and poor quality. The menu often differed to that on the glossy brochure, e. g. sandwiches which varied from that on offer, usually with some of the filling missing. No fresh fruit, no yoghurt, both clearly offered. Sunday lunch, totally different to that in the menu, juice to start, beef or pork dinner, no alternative, sweet apple pie and custard, no alternative.
That said, you aren't there for haute cuisine, just be prepared.
