My recent experience of LGH will, I hope, be my last. I have no complaints at all about the surgical staff (I had a knee replacement) but the nursing care on Ward 16 was nothing short of appalling. There appeared to be no leadership from senior staff and the attitude of most of the nurses seemed to be that patients were a nuisance to be ignored or in some cases bullied. There were a few exceptions on the staff and frankly I don't know how they tolerate working in such an environment. The food was shockingly bad. All the patients in the bay I was in were reliant on family bringing food in as what we were offered was inedible. In brief, avoid if possible!
