"friendly staff"

About: Stafford Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

friendly staff

What could be improved

treatment should be offered more quickly.My condition only requires an injection.It is not releived by pain killers taken orally.I waited 3 weeks for an appointment with consultant and find I must wait untill the end of June (18 wks) for treatment which is so simple that a G.P. carried it out prevously.sadly the GP left so I have to use hospital services.I am in agony.So unfair.More resources should be used in this department.18 wks is fine for some illness but not for acute conditions and excrutiating pain.

Anything else?

The signage on the two lifts needs clarifying.When mobility is restricted its no fun getting in a lift that doesnt go where you thought and have to retrace your steps and start again
