"Lack of sleep on B3 at Queen's Medical Centre"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After feeling dizzy and with chest pain, I went to NHS Direct, where I was then sent to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham. I was admitted to ward B3 and kept in overnight. Unfortunately I didn't get much sleep there as it was so noisy on the ward throughout the night. After several blood tests and x-rays, I was eventually sent home the next day.

In my opinion, the experience could have been made far less stressful if I had been allowed a decent nights sleep.
