What I liked
I was recently in for a lumbar puncture and was given an overnight bed due to having to travel a long distance, the staff i met on 2c were brilliant, very friendly and helpful, the Doctor who did the procedure explained everything really well, and apart from the 30 seconds of stinging due to the anaesthetic, it was painless. The aftercare was great from ALL staff. The cleaning staff were thorough in their work and very friendly ( in other hospitals i found that cleaning staff are treated as invisible by other staff ).
i certainly would have no worries about having to stay any time on 2c.
What could be improved
The number of toilets and showers. even though its an investigatory ward, quite a few men and women using very few facilities, can be embarrassing.
