About: Haslemere Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked I arrived on the ward unable to stand alone after 8 weeks in an acute hospital following a spinal injury. With fantastic nursing encouragement and brilliant physios and OT I was discharged home after 6 weeks where I still live independently. I liked the fact I was put into my own clothes and the staff really seemed to care. What could be improved? I wish I had been able to get a bed in Haslemere sooner. Anything else? The food was excellent and the GPs who looked after me on the ward continued to do so once I was home which was a great help.
