Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback which we have shared with the team on Waddington; I am sorry that your experience was marred by some staff; you are right that we have been using bank and agency staff on a number of our wards as we recruit more nurses but many of them are regulars with us and I am disappointed that their approach was not as we expect - in truth it shouldnt matter whether staff are permanent or temporary your experience should still be a good one! Thank you again.
