What I liked
When i was first referred to this hosptial i was bedbound & on death's door after 44 yrs of neglect & intimidation by other NHS (i was born ill) . They built me up with mainly homeopathic treatments, vitamins, minerals & some herbal remedies, as i was absorbing nothing from food & couldn't tolerate any drugs other than the antidepressants i so desperately needed, I was taken into the hospital for a week, to rest as i had noone at home in a position to take care of me. I felt that they really cared about me & were doing their very best to get me well & answer all my questions & help me with my own research into my condtions. I was booked in for reflexology which was very helpful & had a great impact on my wellbeing. After 16 years of treatment i have definitely improved although mainly housebound but i am so much more comfortable than ever before. More recently as i have improved i have been offered more choices with my treatment ie drugs as well as treatments already mentioned. I actually prefer to take the natural route as it suits my conditions much better than most drugs that i have tried.
I recommend this hospital to anyone who has an environmental health problem or chronically ill people. There is a very good atmosphere at this hospital ~ they take people's health & wellbeing very seriously & i can't thank them enough for the wonderful help & support they have given me over the years, i hope it will continue as i don't know what i'd do without my doctor there & the great nursing staff.
What could be improved
There should be more hospitals like this one!!
