"The staff are marvellous"
About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital Stoke Mandeville Hospital Aylesbury HP21 8AL
My husband and I were both in the hospital at the beginning of February. For different things and in different wards. I was in the surgical ward and the staff could not have been better or more caring.
My husband was in the diabetic ward (and is blind) and by and large the staff were very good, but he found one or two were unacceptably rude. No empathy at all. On the other hand one or two were absolute stars. He says that they could all benefit from a good deal of organisation training. At times they were very muddled, but he feels that at all times they were doing their best, giving the staff constraints they were suffering from.
Every afternoon they found a porter to bring him by wheelchair to my ward, so that we could spend a half-hour or so together. As we are both in our mid-80s and have been married over 61 years this caused us to give the hospital several gold stars!
Thank you Stoke Mandeville hospital.
