What I liked
I was in Selly Oak from 2/7/09 to 7/7/09. I was admitted with a very high temperature having suffered a fever for approx 1 week. I was in the MAU for a few hours then transferred to S6.
The medical and nursing care were excellent, standard of cleanliness most impressive and the food with one exception was superb. EVERY member of staff went out of their way to help, friendly, empathetic and concerned for every comfort of the patient. Clinical care was very professional and appropriately directed.
What could be improved
There were times when I would have like to know what was going on, what the nest stage of treatment was to be, how many more IV's today. However the outcome was exactly what I had hoped for asw I left well on the road to a full recovery from a very scary episode.
I would like to that the whole team (and they are a team) for all their efforts on my behalf. I will not hear of any criticism of the NHS or Selly Oak Hospital again without challenging such remarks. Keep up the good work.
