"ward 20"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I was admitted on 26./11/15 for an operation. Feeling very hungry and dry

I was very disgruntled to see the not so busy staff sat drinking tea at the desk. During my wait the staff were very busy discussing a party on the ward. To add insult to injury whilst dozing off more people arrived for the party. One very inappropriately dressed in a short skirt and high heels clomping up and down the ward. I have had previous visits to the LGH but this one was a joke from start to finish. Where has the patient care gone? This shambles of an area is more like a social gathering than an area for patients
