"I was in for 2 weeks, I was put ..."

About: Leighton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was in for 2 weeks, I was put in a side room. The staff on the EAU ward were very friendly, and pleasent. When I was transferred to ward 2 the same could not be said. Most staff were great, including the night nurses. Sadly one or two day nurses had a bit of a stroppy attitude.

The doctors were great, and kept me informed about my condition.

What could be improved

Staff took time responding to the 'light' (request for a nurse) sometimes it could be on for over 20 minutes before anyone would come. Not helpful when you need the toilet, and are unable to go by yourself.
