"Quite shocked at the grubby clinic"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had to attend the fracture clinic, I have been there before some years ago.

I was quite shocked that it seems to be the same decoration and similar layout i remembered, but everything was tatty and grubby.

Floor /wall corners were dark grey or black, areas in the waiting room were sticky, torn seat corners, splits in the plastic seat base.

The Doctors PC had dust coming out of the front air intake and the screen was visibly sticky with grubby fingerprints. The desk, phone and PC base were covered in dust.

I was quite shocked as such a grubby clinic.

The old Senior Nurses would have thrown a wobbly.
