"the staff were all very friendly ..."

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the staff were all very friendly and would help when they could but were very tight for time

What could be improved

the food was diabolical i ordered my meals what seamed like a wekk in advance and only got sort of what i ordered twice in a whole week

i actually over heared one of the nurses say they had removed a drain of the wrong person and then covered it up by telling the doctor the next day that it fell out this was only a few things my list could go on for hours im glad i didn't actualy need looking after as such and was capable of looking after my self i was also shocked as my medication wasnt taken off me and i was allowed to administer my own medication

i have being in hospital in carlisle and middlesborough i think you need to look at how things are done there a far better standard of care and services were available in these hospitals

Anything else?

i could go on for hrs
