"The Heart Clinic - Angina attack - Doncaster Hospital"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I went in for observation, as I had a suspected angina attack. I stayed in overnight.

I was placed on a mixed sex ward which I was not too happy about, because the man opposite me was always trying to talk to me, making me feel uneasy. I don't believe there was enough nursing staff on the ward. The standard of cleanliness wasn't very good either. In the past you used to know who the staff were, back then everyone was easily identifiable with specific uniforms, now it is hard to tell apart the porters from the nurses.

On the ward the waiting for staff to see you wasn't too long, however there was a long wait in casualty.

The communication from the nurses could have been improved, they didn't always say what they were doing or why they were doing it, i.e. tests and the like.
