I have a collection of rare and complicated conditions and having been in agony and quite literally poisoned by incorrect medication for 2 years prior to moving to RD&E catchment, I was amazed at the professionalism, efficiency and kindness of the staff here. The consultant I saw went above and beyond any behaviour I've ever know for a consultant (non private) by phoning me to discuss test results, admitting me when necessary to enable collaboration with multiple departments quickly to give me some relief from my symptoms. I am honestly amazed by this hospital and its ways of working - same day xrays and consultations on the results - even as an out patient!
The only issue (very minor) I had is once admitted, the privacy and regard for that privacy on the wards is not great. Being below middle age on a ward which is demographically typically of the older generation, I would have liked to have my preference for the curtains partially concealing my bed to be respected rather than opened without consultation. However, a very minor point and in no way affected my treatment or progress.
