"I had a wonderful NHS experience both in..."

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

What I liked

Following a day surgery procedure I had wwhat in my mind was seriuus problem at about 2.30a.m. the following morning. I was in A&E about 03.00 and every possible step was taken to reassure me and my wife that everty thing would eventually be all right. The first doctor I saw which was within a few minutes was absolutelyu fantastic as was her colleague who eventually admitted me to the ward for observastion. I would really like to thank them so much.

My good care did noit end there I was equally impressed by the level of care not only given to me, but to persons who were in a much worse state than me. The ward I ws in was continually being cleaned it appeared to be every hour and the quality of food in quality, presentation and delivery could not be faulted.

What could be improved

Possibly a bit of re-decoration of the walls were they had been damaged.
