I have had many stays in Stafford hospital over the years. I have always had good treatment and care, all my stays have been due to chest infections, i also have had one stay in the A E U ward, i can't remember anything about my stay, but my family tell me i was treated exceptionally well.
I have also had the misfortune to use the A&E dept for broken limbs, and yes you have to wait, but that's because there are people worse off.
My last stay in hospital was Dec 2011, and as usual i was treated with respect and cared for very well, the nurses work so very hard, and i and my family appreciate all they have done us over the years.
I do however think that the A&E dept should NOT close at 10 pm until 8 am, as i think that will mean anyone with an emergency such as heart problem or like me breathing problems, will have to travel up to Stoke. I do not think this is acceptable.
Keep up the good work Stafford, me and my family appreciate all your hard work.
