"The medical expertise healthcare..."

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

What I liked

I was extremely impressed with the care and attention of all of the staff, nurses and the medical team. I was also pleased with the cleanliness that the cleaners maintained. I later moved to the stroke ward where I was even more impressed with all of the nursing and medical services but also with the cleaning standards and the general ambience of the ward and surroundings. I even enjoyed the food, albeit my stay was relatively short. Throughout my stay I felt that not only did the hospital have very high standards, but that the medical care and dignity that I was treated to were of the highest standard. At all times I was fully informed of my diagnosis and prognosis. I was also impressed with the range of specialists that were immediately provided to me on Ward 8, such as speech therapist, occupational therapist and physiotherapist.

What could be improved

Not much from my perspective.

Anything else?

I have to say that my comments about the hospital staff apply equally to the paramedic and ambulance team that treated me beforehand.
