"Not a well managed hospital"

In my experience the operational services of both the James Cook University Hospital in particular and the Friarage left much to be desired. For example on walking to the mortuary there was a large amount of what I assume to be clinical waste, boxes of wastes possibly from the kitchen. On top of this goods coming into the hospital on what was like a wagon train. They all seemed to have been there an age and were blocking egress and ingress. That is just one example of the poor operational services I saw at this hospital. I did speak with some staff saying something needed to be done by one I was told to call was a specific person, however nothing came of that. So I left it and then a friend said did I know about this website I put I don't know which department I visited as Mortuary wasn't there on that list you give. The person I spoke to in Mortuary was not helpful either. I should also mention the parking charges. How can it be legal to make money like that out of sick people and their families. My friend got a fine which was way above any comparable fine he would get if he was on a public road. One member of staff told me that the management at this hospital live in an ivory tower called the Murray Building and that they rarely are seen in the hospital let alone work in the hospital. Further that when they do come round it is very hard to get them to scrub their hands. The operational management is not connected at this hospital. One gets a strong feeling of them and us at this hospital. The canteen was nice though
