"i feel quite relaxed about having to..."

About: Wansbeck Hospital

What I liked

Thought the nurses on ward 7 were brilliant, always attentive and very relaxed and cheerful too. My 4th visit to this ward in the last 3 years and ive always had great care

What could be improved

Quicker discharge. On last stay i was told i could leave at 8.15am as soon as my tablets came up from the pharmacy, however i wasnt able to leave until 3.30pm. This seemed a long wait and a waste of the bed i was occupying that someone else surely could have used.

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Thank you for your very kind comments posted on the NHCT website regarding the care afforded to you at Wansbeck General Hospital.

Patient feedback is always appreciated and I have noted your comments concerning the availability of medication for discharge. I have raised your comments with our Chief Matron who will take this to the next Transfer and Discharge Group. Thank you for taking the time to write.
