Review of two halves, after an elective procedure in KGV building I spent 4 days in their CCU, amazing, Caring helpful and very compassionate staff (Nurses, Doctors and Support Staff) who worked well in together in clean modern conditions to provide the best possible care, it's never fun to be in hospital but if you have to be admitted its well worth considering, it certainly gets my vote.
Part 2 After 4 days and just prior to my discharge I was transferred to the QE2 Building (W.G.Grace Ward) after traversing what seemed like the Tunnels to hell to get there (such heat even at midnight) and not the most hygienic of journeys, and the lifts! well you get to the wards and for a while you can not believe you are in the same hospital, it's such a shame as staff who are kind and caring are having to work in these very different, very dismal, old and archaic conditions, the sooner this part of the hospital is knocked down and rebuilt the better.
