"An oasis of exceptional care. Thank you..."
About: Newark Hospital Newark Hospital Newark NG24 4DE
What I liked
Having had extremely unpleasant experiences in a number of other hospitals around the country, I found Newark to be an oasis of exceptional care.
The hospital is very clean, with a good ratio of Staff to Patients. There was a proper handover between shifts, so that the team coming on were fully briefed about the patients they had on the ward. Staff at every level were welcoming and helpful and I had complete confidence in their knowledge and professional competence, which is (sadly) not something I could have said when being treated in other hospitals.
Some of my experiences eslewhere have been genuinely terrifying, but this hospital is a beacon of good practice and I can't praise it highly enough.
What could be improved
There was some sticky residue on the floor in the waiting area, by the fire extinguishers. However, this is a very minor comment. Everywhere else (including the wards and toilet facilities) were spotless.
