"The hospital is extremely clean ..."

About: Darent Valley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The hospital is extremely clean airy and modern,it smells fresh and nice.Each time i have been to this hospital for tests or on last occasion to the day care center staff have been polite friendly and very efficient,i have never been kept waiting long and have been impressed by the large bright waiting areas that are fresh and airy. My last visit was to the day care center and i must say it was run like clockwork with nurses consultants anethasist all keeping you updated reguarly about what will be happening next it was comfortable nice small ward and lovely cup of tea and toast offered soon as i was awake after opp,there was a nurse there when woke and water straigt away.Very impressed i would say it is on par with a private hospital for its facillities and quality of care by the staff,my husband and myself have both been treated in private hospitals before and i would have no problem at all in reccomending this hospital,i think it is great and feel very lucky we have such a good hospital here,well done to all the hard working staff,it even has a lovely selection of shops and a super cafe selling good coffee and food. Please keep up these high standards.

What could be improved

Nothing really comes to mind,would be nice if more people used the hand cleaners though before entering the hospital,maybe put up large signs and make sure they are all full and working.

Anything else?
