"Common courtesies"

About: Freeman Hospital

Anything else?

Staff need to remember to introduce themselves as a common courtesy.

I was called in for a pacemaker check 20 minutes after my appointment time – no apology given.

Cannot speak too highly of the care given by the medical staff that I regularly see.
