My Gran was taken in on a Friday and sadly passed away on the following Tuesday. I was totally amazed at the care and patience shown not just to her but the relatives as well. This were the person who brought the food, the person who brought drinks, the staff nurse, the porter, the consultant and the myriad of others who we saw over those days. As ever, the wonderfulness about our NHS is the people who work in it and they were fantastic. What I didn't like was on this website. When I originally searched for the hospital to be able to find the location and a site map, the first thing I was presented with was the mortality rates! I remember when the point of this public facing website was to 'destress' the journey through the NHS for patients and their visitors. To give them the information they needed to make a very stressful time in their lives as easy as possible. Seeing bad mortality rates when your family member is already admitted is not helpful! Mortality rates are great for patients choice but not on the main page when you search for a hospital please.
