What could be improved
My husband was a patient on the oncology ward in February of this year, following admission through A and E, although his treatment was excellent he was told that he had terminal cancer on his own without any warning and dispite the fact that the staff nurse who told him was aware that he was being visited by his pastor just before he was told. he then had to endure 2 hours on his own before myself and our 15 year old daughter could come and collect him, we were totally unaware of the diagnosis. I thought that it was not done to tell people that kind of news without some support and as an ex nurse myself i was horrified. He died at home 9 weeks later with no more intervention from the hospital.
I do feel that having also been a patient myself at the hospital that generally the level of care and commitment is excellent.
