"Made to feel comfortable about asking questions"

About: City Hospital campus

(as the patient),

I went to Nottingham City Hospital in March and spent 2 days on Edward ward, 2 days on Fraser ward, 2 days on the coronary care unit and 10 days on Gillies ward. I was treated for shortage of breath, very weak and unable to eat due to secondary breast cancer. Everything was explained clearly to me and I was made to feel comfortable about asking questions. This was the best bit. But I do not like mixed sex wards and I think this could be made better. The food was better than I expected but I was disappointed to find the porridge was cold on Gillies ward. I would like to thank the doctors and nurses on the coronary care unit. Doctors Chan, Sayer and Bell from the oncology department and Linda Winterbottom and finally Macmillan the breast care nurse.
