The care I got last night from the paramedics, doctors nurses even the porter was excellent. I can’t thank them enough, even though they were busy the care and understanding was fantastic and luckily I was allowed home. Thank you to those that looked after me last night 6th January 2023.

Nurses and staff have been excellent but it has taken nearly 6 hours to be discharged with no explanation given.
I was in a single room and imagine it would be well sought after by incoming patients. Hopefully it’s not holding up a critical care patient

After 4 years of consistent treatment, my care has stalled because of a specialists holiday, despite now some 20 calls to the booking department, a visit to the CEO’s office and assurances from PALS it would be sorted – NO-ONE has returned my calls as promised.
