About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

no one likes being in hospital and staff should know this , we have not gone there for a holiday, more staff would be usefull the nurses are rushed of their feet .the consultants all need lessons in dealing with people , even though i was in sever pain the consultant stopped my pain meds telling her colleague that i didnt need them , i was lying on a bed in absloute agony crying in pain just to be told that a doctor might come along later , that doctor never did and i had to wait another 4 hours till i got something , my consultant never even spoke to me the whole time i was there just read my notes , the ones she had written , i was in there a week and for 2 days they were telling the pain is under control go home , it was me feeling the pain and it was not under control , they did sent a cronic pain manegment nurse to see me but they refused to act on her recomendations , i gave in and went home but went direct to my gp who told me go straight back to hospital as you should be there.

Anything else?

this is supposed to be the caring profession but in my experience not 1 of the staff could care less

this whole experience has been horrendous and if i never have to set foot in that place again i still wont be happy
