"I first had to go to brighton ..."

About: Princess Royal Hospital (Haywards Heath)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I first had to go to brighton for 0900 to have a wire put in ,so the lump would be found by doctor,3 there all sitting waiting as no beds prh, beds found for all 3 . i was book to have opp at prh 1230 still in brighton as all 3 have to be done before we go to prh.Why cant this all be done at prh,because services have already been reduced and prh is left without .

What could be improved

Arrived at prh great,no only 2 beds , i get put in what i can only say was like a store room in horsted keys ward. i did get my opp at 1715 and pested to be allowed home as i did not wish to spend in a makeshift room. Staff were great trouble was not enough staff, you have to feel sorry as they have to run round like headless chichens,nhs 60 years old can not see it being around in the next 60 unless we see whats needed thats going back to basic less managers more nurses&doctors and stop all the silly targets the have to meet lets let the medical people run the show ,we do not need all these trust nhs is all for one and one for all
