"medical treatment good, ripped off in..."

About: Freeman Hospital

What I liked

The staff in all departments visited on that day were friendly and mmade me feel at ease.

What could be improved

My appointment was at 9-40 in cardiology, my husband was to be admitted to a ward at 12md, we decided to go for some breakfast as we had left home early in the morning, I was astounded to discover the breakfast items were 75pence per item, the bacon was nothing special, the sausage was the cheap kind therefore a full pack would only cost 75p. Whilst I don't mind people making a profit this is a rip off, some people will be visiting for long hours, sick relatives, having travelled on public transport therefore unable to go anywhere else for a meal, I really do feel you should keep prices down for visitors to the freeman.
