"Whittington Hospital"

About: The Whittington Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I had an operation to remove my fibroids in the Whittington in 2005. The operation was fantastic, but my stay in hospital was pretty miserable. Despite a nice new, clean ward, there wasn't much else to commend the experience. Some of the nurses gossiped loudly about their holidays all the way through the night, and seemed to show no empathy with women who were in real pain. The food was terrible and hardly had any nutrition. It was as if the whole hospital was set up for the benefit of the people who worked there rather than the patients who deserve better. I am obviously really happy to have had a successful operation, but if the staff I met had been a little more sensitive and professional, my stay would have been a much better experience. Patient Opinion has published a staff response to this feedback .
