"Finishing my treatment on the ..."

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Finishing my treatment on the ward and going home to be looked after properly.

What could be improved

Liason between patients,nurses and doctors. Cleaners to move a bit faster.Nurses and doctors to listen to patients.

Anything else?

I found that the one nurse was more interested in gossip, fashion, heavy face make up and dying her hair, than in the patients.
