"Treatment for infection"

About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

(as the patient),

Referred by GP for resilient kidney infection, admitted to Surgical Assessment ward.

Nursing staff were friendly, caring and did all they could to help.

Had expected the worst from hospital food but found the food to be really good and plenty of it, even if there was nothing you fancied for lunch etc it wouldn't be long before more snacks etc were available.

Was very impressed by the levels of cleanliness in and around the ward, the two cleaners worked exceptionally hard (for presumably very little reward) and at no point did I see anything that required attention.
