"The staff were generally pleasant"

About: East Surrey Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The staff were generally pleasant

What could be improved

I was left without information about my condition and my care for long periods. I was seen by a succession of different doctors who gave me vague and conflicting information about how I should and would be treated. I was kept in hospital far longer than necessary because I was waiting to see a doctor who could make a decision.
