2007 - 2014 Services experienced were Oncology and Cardiology that proved to be exceptional, on occasion in very traumatic circumstances. Well Done. That continued into Community Services that are managed by this Trust. Endocrinology Service however was very much the opposite and helped reduce my star ratings. Experiences however on all wards including Endocrinology for Nursing care was never less than excellent so generally what ;let the side down related to attitude and medical practitioner. Had some experiences with A & E at a traumatic life threatening event for myself and distressing event for family members and they performed well the care only damaged by other patients, drunk, abusive and aggressive and staff being put under ridiculous stress because of this. Give this they acted magnificently. Movement between clinics and admission medical assessment wards worked well if not madly busy and noisy, food excellent overall. Seems that this Trust and all of its staff including the little referred to in departments like X-Ray, Path lab, Visitor support, Porterage and general administration have always made my occasional admissions worthy of positive comment. As an ex-nurse of many, many years other nurses will probably agree that we are actually hard to please as we do expect more from colleagues and high standards are expected as 'normal'. I hope that my contact in 2015 will be a repeat of previous years as I expect my health to deteriorate proportionately over time and look forward to being well cared for Thank you to all staff and keep up the good work. If you are one of those letting the side down then it's time to wake up, sorry!. The dates and departments further down in the submission do not always reflect my commendations as there is only opportunity to mention one month and one department. My experience has been excellent in most and poor in one part of one Department (Endocrinology) so this reflects an overall opinion only
