"My father in laws recent hospital stay"
About: Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland Royal Hospital Sunderland SR4 7TP
My father in law has recently recieved a biopsy of his kidney and he reported that he was very impressed with all levels of care and attention, from the consultant and nursing staff both qualified and unqualified. "He loved the hot beef sandwhich" and was escorted to my car personally by an attentive health care assistant One problem was the fact that his surgery had been cancelled previously as there were no beds avaiable on the planned day of surgery, although he had not arrived to the hospital this caused great anxiety and distress to an 85 year old man and his wife. On the second surgery date given, he recieved a telephone call same day of planned surgery, to say that there was no bed avaialble. However my husband contacted the ward and the nursing sister ensured that there would be a bed available. It sounds to me capacity does not meet demand.
