What I liked
I was on Ward 312 and the staff, both medical and non-medical, were professional and friendly. Any questions I asked were answered promptly either by the person I asked or by somebody more senior.
What could be improved
The Hospicom ? system has free television between 12pm and 1pm but it would be better if it were free between 1pm to 2pm as this would allow patients to see the national and local news programmes on ITV and BBC 1. I think this would be helpful to the patients as it's easy to become insulated from what is happening in the outside world wilst you're in hospital.
Get rid of the steamplicity system and use a microwave instead. Steamed Chicken Korma just doesn't work very well.
All in all, my stay (a week) in the hospital seemed to pass very quickly.
