What I liked
I went into Addenbrookes for a detached retina as an emergency. I was at, or in the hospital for three days. This included my pre-op assessment.
Although when I arrived there was no bed available, I was assured one would be on my return from the operating theatre. From start to finish I found the staff to be professional, caring and with a positive attitude. This is all staff, from the ward staff to the consultant anaesthetist and the consultant surgeon.
I feel that we are very lucky to have this hospital with its many specialist facilities in the East of England and thank you to all staff, night and day, of ward M5 for looking after me and calming my nerves so admirably.
What could be improved
More availability of beds.
