"My wife has been an out patient ..."

About: Castle Hill Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My wife has been an out patient and is currently an in patient. At all times the staff have without exception been second to none in their professionalism and upbeat manner.

For patient care, highly recommended

What could be improved

Car parking during the day for the out patient and visitor can and does cause frustration and stress. There are at times simply not enough spaces to meet the demand.

Anything else?

The main canteen closes at 2 p.m. Many visitors, having travelled long distances, are denied a hot meal when visiting because the canteen is closed - a cause at times of some quite ripe comments! Wilbers (if one can find it) is not sufficient.
