"Good care on the whole but protocol needs to be..."

Really nice environment but I think a two night stay is far, far too short after a spinal operation - I really needed that extra day to get pain relief sorted out. A totally hellish journey back home, vomiting and with the runs not really sorted out by the anti sickness drug whacked in just before I left. 24 hours of sickness and pain followed with extreme reactions to codeine and also anti inflammatory medication. I know this is the surgeon's decision and standard practice, but it does need to be raised. However, all this said, the hospital wins hands down in terms of a restful and welcoming environment and I'm still terribly grateful for receiving care here as opposed to any other NHS facility.
