Having recently returned home from ward 19 at the freeman hospital the staff were excellent but over run by the sheer volume of the patients turnover, so care was spasmodic - ie left in toilet for around 25 minutes, no morning or afternoon cup of tea most days, but you can live with that.
The thing you could not live with was the appalling meals if you could call them that. The menu was rubbish and when it came it looked disgusting sometimes as if it had been picked up of the floor and slopped back on the plate. I and most of the ladies in my bay seemed to have never ate a main course but instead lived on soup and puddings or what visitors brought in.
