My husband spent a month there on the oncology ward. Whils there he had his mobile phone stolen by another patient, his only link with me, his wife, as I couldn't visit as often as I would like due to my own disability. For patients on oncologhy wards I feel that rules about visiting times should be more relaxed. When we visited there were some patients who had 10 - 14 visitors. It was so noisy that we couldn't have a proper conversation, this and the general noise on the wards as a whole distressed my very ill husband enormously. He asked me never to let him go to that hospital again.They couldn't cure him so sent him home. He has since died.
