About: The James Cook University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

patient care was excellent, nurses generally friendly,

What could be improved

the food was a bit naff at times, otherwise I had no complaints. Sometimes had to take what was left.

Anything else?

I'm not sure I was warned properly about the halucinatory effect of the drugs I was given. I spent about four days in a very odd place, This afer cardiac bypass surgery, valve replacement, and aorta reroot,
