I have just returned from the fracture clinic after having seen a lovely lady. I then saw a doctor who then gave me a cortisone injection in my hand. The whole experience was great, everything was explained to me I was given three options and decided on the injection. It did not feel like I was in hospital. Thank you very much to those involved. ps. reception staff were very friendly as were staff at the door when I walked in wondering where to go. My only gripe is not with the hospital but the car park, nightmare. Please change the system back to what it was before, people are struggling, me included, to put in their registration number. I didn't know how long I would be so I put £1.80 in for 1 and a half hours, I was less than 3/4 of an hour. People are paying far too much. I helped an older person than myself by keying in his registration because the digits were too small and he couldn't find half the letters because they are spread all over. I had to put my specs on to see them. Who ever is responsible for this car park put yourself in the patients or visitors hands and you try it! People are stressed enough going to hospital and do not need extra stress trying to put money in the meter for their cars. Please wake up and smell the coffee!.
