"Unhappy with my private care"

About: BMI - Thornbury Hospital (Sheffield)

(as the patient),

Admitted for small surgery to BMI Thornbury Hospital via NHS.

The consultant was great, really appreciate his effort, but in my opinion the nursing care was shocking.

I could not believe my eyes when a nurse wrote my observations (blood pressure and pulse) into a chart without even checking them. She did not realise that I am an experienced nurse in NHS.

My overall experience of private hospital was very poor, I will definitely not pay privately to go there again.

I am considering making a formal complaint as this is a breach of duty of care.
