"Toilet seat trouble"

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute) / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I liked the love, care and attention of every member of staff, it was terrific.

What needs improvement are the toilet seats, those on the wheel chairs and those fitted to the home toilet, they are useless. They are only made for women, men cannot sit and urinate and open their bowels as men's genitals will not sit inside the opening. This means one has to open the bowels, then stand and turn to urinate.

With a knee/hip replacement operation it becomes like mission impossible. I spoke to 8 other men who agreed.
