What I liked
The professionalism of the entire colo-rectal staff, nursing staff, care staff and all ancilliary staff clearly working a team with a very positive attitude to their tasks and with a positive attitude that encouraged patients at all times.
Food was a pleasant surprise although I was not allowed any for some time. When I started eating , I consider I was fed quite well. Some really tasty meals and the baked potatoes were first class - kitchen should open a stall on Lovely Lane
What could be improved
"Steak and kidney in red wine sauce topped with puff pastry" - the sauce and the meat was excellent (really good). The huge puff pastry topping which I imagined would be delicous eaten in my fingers was indeed so but turned out to be about two square inches in size!
I was impressed by the uniformly high quality of nursing and care provided on my ward. Handovers were clearly carried out with great efficiency. Consultants and junior doctors seemed top appear on the ward frequently and at all hours; communication with this patient was excellent
