I spent 6 days in Buckland ward having my right kidney removed and cannot fault the care and patience of the nursing staff, sometimes in very difficult situations, The superb cleanliness was an eye opener. The food was adequate when you have little appetite and your taste buds make everything taste off but more fresh fruit might help. An observation was that there were not enough footstools for patients (we had one in our ward which was being used) as I found the chair very uncomfortable and would have like to put my feet up. Also some of the night staff could have been a bit quieter! A suggestion was that during nurses training they were put into a normal ward and spend a night to see just what it's like from a patient point of view.
