Admitted on a day ward for an Angiogram test. The staff were very professional and efficient. It's a mixed ward but everyone's dignity was maintained throughout. There was a small mishap with the curtains between beds falling down, but the maintenance guys fixed it straight away with no fuss. The toilets were clean and tidy, no issues there the cleaning crews were obviously on the ball, so all credit to them. The ward was very clean and the staff cleaned their hands at every stage before handling patients. I was kept informed at every stage of the procedure, and it all went like clockwork. The staff were helpful and friendly. They even managed to arrange an echocardiogram at short notice so I didn't miss a holiday. This is NHS at it's best! The consultant gave me the diagnosis straight away and provided me with a copy of my notes at the time. He explained every thing, and even popped back to make sure I had another opportunity to ask any more questions before I left. I can't praise the staff enough. Well done Wansbeck!
