"I cannot fault with any of it."

About: Dorset County Hospital

What I liked

I had an operation at Dorset County hospital on the 25th October 2010, and spent the next two and a half days in Purbeck Ward recovering.

The nursing staff that looked after me were very professional.This was the first time I had been in Hospital and I found they were, not only excellent at their jobs, but very dedicated. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble for them and patients needs were attended to promptly and cheerfully. The way they responded to and reassured one very old and very sick man was a revelation.

It is nice to know that such high standards are here in Dorset.

What could be improved

Outpatient appointments were rather lengthy
