"Absolutely nothing"

About: Harrogate District Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Absolutely nothing

What could be improved

Nursing care was of a very poor standard.The doctors could not make a diognosis of my wifes' condition.She had to go to St,James'Hospital to find out what her illness was.The doctors'who treated my wife with chemotherapy were at best blase and at worst neglegent.

Anything else?

I am writing this on behalf of my wife who passed away in August 2008.Personally speaking,if I have a problem that requires hospital treatment I would go to Leeds or York.

I would strongly recommend anyone to avoid Harrogate District Hospital.This,I know won't be published but you did ask!!!!
