"Problems with several hospitals"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington) Queen Mary's Hospital (Sidcup)

(as the patient),

A review of the Pru this experience is true

1. Unacceptable food - sandwich – thick white bread smeared with? ? – very thin ham, half a tomato – verdict disgusting.

Remedy – I wrote to caterers complaining

2. Salad unavailable – suggest as at St. Thomas’s’ hospital small sealed plastic boxes with a choice of a fish or meat (chicken or tuna etc..)

On discharge form hospital, all my clothes were missing including a new pair of orthopaedic shoes and a purse containing about £5. 00. Six months after claiming compensation and a letter to the local paper, I eventually received payment for my claim of £80. 00

A very rude member of the cleaning staff once again another letter. And then a totally miserable breakfast trolley staff – how about a greeting with a smile.

The Beacon Beckenham – nice little hospital – short staffed asked a member of the staff to take me to the toilet replied NOT QUALIFIED! That says it all

And now to St Mary’s Sidcup – phoned me one Tuesday morning to inform me that my husband had died (albeit 5 years ago)?

Once again I promote St Thomas’s pleasant staff and good edible food.
