What I liked
My daughter received excellent care & treatment on the children's ward. We were kept well informed and able to be by her side throughout her stay, which was important to us and her.
What could be improved
Full introduction (name, position & speciality) from all doctors & consultants and better communication between them. This would hopefully ensure we not only understood the reason for a new face (change of shift, different speciality, etc) but prevent us having to repeat the history, symptoms, progress.
I do not agree with the tv / media system-not only is it extortionate, but using headphones is not sterile. I think free, or low cost, tv & radio entertainment should be provided for inpatients. In my opinion this media contract is an example of the division between nhs management & care.
