Admitted to the hospital via the tortuous route of drop-in centre, A&E and several hours painful wait. Here the service appears under stress and laborious, but nonetheless the staff were helpful, attentive and professional.
11 days on the ward where ALL staff were friendly and helpful. No real issues here, and I found the food (surprisingly) good.
Dislocation from the responsible doctors was one cause of concern (gastro complaint, but I was housed on another Ward) but the clinical care was of a high standard.
The provision of audio/visual facilities is quite frankly highway robbery and indequate in nature; this is solely an admin issue and should reflect on the Trust, not the Hospital.
I have nothing but praise for the nursing, anciliary and surgical staff at GWH.
