About: Airedale General Hospital

After spending time on the gynaecology ward at Airedale I was very dissatisfied with the care I received. The nurses who dealt with my care had no concept of confidentiality. (When addressing the side effects of the medication I was about to take the nurse addressed the room full of patients who were taking the same medication instead of taking the time to go to each individual, maybe close the curtains?) The anaesthetist seemed to have the same problem with confidentiality. I saw no compassion in any of the nurses I was cared for by and it made my experience 10 times worse. I would never recommend this ward to anyone and would rather travel further afield for better care.
