My 85 year old father was admitted in March after collapsing at home.
He had an extremely long wait outside A&E in an ambulance but once he was actually admitted he had excellent care.
He ended up spending a month on the Short Stay Surgery ward due to that being the only bed for him, and despite him being very challenging at times (with dementia and a psychotic-type episode during his stay), the staff were extremely kind and caring and genuinely seemed quite fond of him by the time he was discharged to a care home.
