"Nursing staff"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

I would highly recommend the nursing staff on both Welton and shuttleworth wards following my stay.

They were professional and excellent carers at a very worrying time.

I was not so impressed with some of the doctors who seems to lack this professionalism and saw the it patients as numbers rather than thinking, concerned people who have have a right to have a say, or at least knowledge of, their own treatment.

Welton ward was excellent in terms of cleanliness and the efficiency of staff.

They seemed far less stressed than shuttleworth, who seemed always over worked and never had time to aid some of the more distressed and confused patients.

I would also like to highly commend the treatment I received from the Nurse from the Pain team.

The were excellent in all ways, ensuring I received the correct treatment and was made comfortable and not stressed or anxious by the procedure.
