Staff are very kind, I can't praise them highly enough. They are cheerful, good humoured, never nasty, a little uppish sometimes nothing to complain about. The quality of care is good, but they don't give you enough information. Why is the NHS run on paracetamol? It's not strong enough. I was waiting for two days before the doctor wrote it up.
I waited ages for the lunch to be delivered, and the in my opinion the food is the biggest let down. There is too much - all veg on the plate - and the bread and butter pudding would mend a hole in a dam! I had to wait til everyone else had left the table before I could leave the table, and my son was visiting. Drinks are good, and they change the water several times a day. It is too hot on the ward, though - my lips have peeled about 4 times.
You sometimes have to wait a bit for staff to come to help you, there aren't enough of them. I'm not dissatisfied with the care though, would just like a bit more information and not just paracetamol for pain. I'm grateful, I'm cared for and it's all for nothing. I don't think it should be for nothing, we should pay.
