About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham)

What I liked

excellent caring nurses

What could be improved

The food was unfit for human consumption and i refused to eat it. The bed was too short. I did not have a single good night sleep. People do not keep you informed. Was told Thursday would be having mri scan soon. Now Monday and keep being told its booked but just left hanging around in state of total depression.
