"Same sex areas and pharmacy slowness"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Not happy that my wife was treated badly by one nurse when she refused to be placed in an area filled with male patients in EAU. Also, when she was ready to go there was a 4 hour wait for the tablets to appear from the Pharmacy, despite constant questions from me as to when they would arrive, and pressure on staff to vacate beds for new patients, which couldn't be done until my wife got her medication.
