"I am happy that Rotherham Hospital is where it is"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as the patient),

I use quite a few services at Rotherham hospital so I have had a wide experience of the services. I use the eye clinic, elderly people clinic and also go for prostate problems and angina. On the whole I have been very pleased. I would like to mention the elderly department in particular. I am a regular visitor and they have done very well by me. My main criticism is with the food. I can see it is a big problem trying to feed so many people of different wards and isolation wards. But I see no reason that when you order what you want the day before why you shouldn’t get it. If you’re at the back of the queue you shouldn’t have to have what is left. One general observation is the different attitudes between staff. Some I have seen seem to be just doing for the pay cheque whereas others seem to have their heart truly in it, but it is understandable to get this when hiring large numbers of people. In general I have always been treated courteously and with kindness and I am happy that Rotherham Hospital is where it is.
