"Ward 223"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

Anything else?

I was most impressed with the positive attitude and cheerfulness of most of the staff, including ancillary staff. It made what was a miserable stay in hospital as bearable as it could be. Note, I was unable to select a department below but was in ward 223 of coronary unit.
