My husband was transferred back to the Royal Free to recover from a heart operation (carried out at the Heart Hospital). The Heart Hospital was excellent and care was second to none.
The communication between hospitals was terrible. The Royal Free were not expecting him, the bed wasn't ready, the nurses didn't know what was going on. Having had lots of experience with hospitals - one of the main problems is the lack of communication. It is frustrating to turn up by passenger ambulance only to find the hospital is not expecting you.
General ward care at the Royal Free needs improving but specialist care (Cardiology, Vascular etc) at the Royal Free is excellent. The Heart Hospital was incredible.
