"Cleanliness of the cafe"

About: William Harvey Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

I attended the fracture clinic with my husband in the middle of September and he was seen promptly and I have no complaint about his treatment.

However we had a small wait before our daughter could pick us up and so we went to the cafe near the main entrance for a cup of tea.

The staff were not busy and there was no queue but the general seating area looked and was filthy. Tables were dirty as was the floor and it looked most unhygienic.

This area is letting down the generally clean other areas of your hospital.
