"excellent"

About: James Paget University Hospital

What I liked

I stayed for ten days on Ward 17 while they investigated my problems and was treated brilliantly by all the staff there.

My room was kept spotless, the food (even though I was unable to eat much) was excellent, the doctors and nurses made sure I was pain free without having to ask and the care cannot be faulted.

The Doctors spent time with me and kept me informed of every step of my treatment and the nurses were just angels. (including cups of tea in the early hours of the morning which I'm sure they did not have to do, but still did so)

10/10

What could be improved

The only minor fault was that the doctor put me on a low fat diet which is not available on the menu. However, the nurses went out of their way to provide me with suitable sandwiches whenever the meal delivered was not suitable for me.
