"I was admitted to ward 5 in 2002 ..."

About: Wansbeck Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to ward 5 in 2002 with breast cancer.I could not have recieved better treatment anywhere. The nursing .and domestic staff were brilliant, they were so friendly and caring. I really felt that I mattered to them (not just another job to be ticked of the list)The ward was clean and the meals were 1st class.

What could be improved

The waste bin in the bathroom was not properly emptied
