"A very poor experience, not quite third world."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

What I liked

Nurses friendly.

What could be improved

The family of a patient in the 4 bay ward came at evening visiting time complete with burger and chips, the smell brought in was onerous and the staff made no comment. Is this realy acceotable - two of the patients in the bay were very poorly and I would have felt that this should not be allowed.

Is there a policy ? and who is expected to enforce ?
