"Thanks to the nursing staff on ward 18 at Barnsley District General"

About: Barnsley Hospital / Respiratory medicine

(as the patient),

I was a patient on ward 18 at the Barnsley District General Hospital with chest pains. The nursing staff were very good, working under difficult conditions. The Doctors could have been better though - they didn't have much time for the patients, and they made the other staff more stressed, which didn't help matters.

The worst thing about my experience was having to stay on a mixed ward - this made me feel upset and embarrassed, because it seemed undignified.

I would like to thank the nursing staff in ward 18 for the kindness and care.
