"I went to the hospital as an emergency ..."

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent

(as the patient),

What I liked

I went to the hospital as an emergency with a possible burst appendix.

Even though it was an emergency Doctors kept me in informed on what would happen.

The next day I was told it was a tumour and they had to remove more than was first thought. After tests had been done they told me it was cancer and had spread. I was given excellent support, care and was treated as an intelligent individual. That was 4 years ago. The care I received was suburb you couldn’t fault anything. 2 years later I was then determined to have my IVF/ICSI baby there too even though I was technically out of their area. I had a planned delivery due to other complications, and ended up staying for 4 weeks prior to having my baby.

I can not give enough praise to all members of staff. From top consultants to cleaners. All have been friendly, supportive and helpful.

I thought the food was good as well. OK so it’s not 5 michelin stars but its fresh, healthy and tasty.

What could be improved

I can’t thing of anything.
