"First impressions of Lings Bar"

About: Lings Bar Hospital / Inpatient nursing and rehabilitation

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I only came to Forest Ward this morning, it’s my first time here.

The staff are very friendly. It’s clean and bright, it’s very nice.

I haven’t got used to everything yet, it’s so strange and different to wards I’ve been on.

When I first arrived I was amazed at how vast it seemed, how big. I’m still trying to get my bearings.

Thank you so much for your first impressions, I am really pleased to see you noticed the cleaniness of the hospital as we take great pride in working together with our hotel service team to ensure the hospital is as clean and welcoming as possible. How lovely to know we have achieved that for you. I shall pass on your comments to our hotel service team as they will be very pleased to see your comments.
