What I liked
my mother is 76 she is in a ward. the only time i can see her is from 3 to 4 and then 6.30 to 8
we have the children to pick up from school (6 and 4) then it time to feed them and homework.
bed time is 7o/c. that leaves 0ne hour to get to the hospital find a parking place if i am lucky then get to the ward . thats ok if you are in medway but we live in bapchild right in the middle of where my mother could have been taken. medway hospital, w h hospital at ashford, q m hospital at margate.
all hospitals are over 1/2 hours drive away on a good run.
about time kent hospitals wake up and get into the real world .
medway hosp to small
qm margate hosp to close to the sea (should have been better placed )
w h hosp ashford to hard to get to from this side of kent.
how about canterbury hospital ? to close to us all , right in the middle of the whole area, lets close more of the wards lets down rate this hospital, lets sell the land for more houses lets have a city with out the full service it should have and what the people need in this part of kent .
wake up kent hospital trusts
the word trusts should not be used because we can no longer trust the trusts
to do the right thing.
What could be improved
wake up and see that canterbury hospital is needed as a full working hospital with 24 hour a&e
but back to ward hours 3 to 4 6.30 to 8 way to short and so unfair to familys that are over 1/2 hr away by car. (what hope do people have with buses and trains)
"hospital trusts are no longer to be..."
