"i have been a patient at this ..."

About: Ipswich Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i have been a patient at this hospital many times for my condition and everytime i go i am more and more impressed , the nurses remember me - as im always on the same ward- and im treated more like a friend than a patient even the first time i stayed on this ward i was treated with so much respect (and they even let me out for a cigarette as i was nervous!!!) all the staff take time out of their shift to talk to you - firstly about what you are there for and secondly about everyday things - i stayed at the hospital 3 times when i was pregnant but then didn't have to go back for another 6 months and when i went back i'd had my daughter and they were all like 'oh my god you've had the baby!!' its the little things that count to me like remembering i was pregnant and like the dinner ladies letting my mum or fiance , whoever is with me, have a portion of dinner too. im never bothered about having to come to this hospital.

What could be improved

more beds!
