What I liked
I was initially admitted with acute pancreatitis, and cannot find fault with the standard of care - the paramedics, a&e staff, ward staff and consultants were all absolutely fantastic.
I would particularly like to praise the atmosphere the staff on ward 1 create. Relaxed yet professional, it really helped put not only myself but visitors also at ease whilst still being superbly professional - truly excellent.
What could be improved
More information about treatment would have been nice - when I asked the consultant what would happen as regards treatment I was told the worst-case scenario (needing surgery if any complications occurred) when I was really interested in the treatment plan as things stood.
Additionally the menu wasn't ideal (when I was allowed to eat again) as the vegetarian offerings really didn't cater for the no-fat diet that I had been put on.
