"I was rushed into the childrens ..."

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was rushed into the childrens A&E very recently, and ended up having an emergency operation performed. I was in alot of pain before hand, but all of the staff did their utmost to help. They all went out of their way to help me and my family. I stayed in my own room and my mum was alowed to stay over night with me. When I came out of theater, many of the day staff who had gone home phoned up the ward to see how I was, which was more than their call of dutey. Every morning a member of staff came in to clean my room, and did a very good job of it to.The operation was a huge success and now I am almost fully recovered. The nurses made what could have been a terrible experience, bareable, and every member of staff was fautless.

What could be improved

The price of the bedside TV. Other than that, nothing.
