"Never again"

About: Croydon University Hospital

No communication between staff & other depts. diagnosed with cancer in out patients, admitted to ward, spent 7 days on ward. No one supported me with this bombshell throughout my whole stay. Ward noisy, disorganised, staff always too busy, whenever family went to nurses station to speak to a member of staff they walked away! visitors disrupting ward with their noise. It was absolute hell. The only high point of my stay we're 2 wonderful nurses.
