"I wouldnt wish tha experience on any one..."

About: Newham General Hospital

What I liked

The nurses in theatre were amazing really made me feel at ease. After surgery the nurses in the clinic were rude, the broke the bed and I had to jump of a broken bed as i was about to fall off as the bed was raised high and at an angle. I had to beg to get something to eat as i had not eaten since the night before. They dont communicate anything with you except the doctor will see you soon , I got there at 12 and the doctor came at 4pm.

What could be improved

The nurses could be friendlier they were more concerned about going for the break than taking me theatre and general bedsdie manner could do with training they were just very very rude.

Even worse i went in to get ganglion removed and the surgeon didnt remove ( or just missed one of the larger ones that actually cause me pain). So i may have to go in again to have it removed .
