Following a terrible time suffering with severe back and leg pain not taking seriously by my own GP and health board, I finally received a delayed diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome and was promptly transferred to the QUEH ward 64.
I cannot praise every single member of staff I encountered more. During a very difficult and vulnerable time for me every single person I encountered was kind, compassionate and helpful, especially considering my bad experiences leading up to my admission to ward 64. Nursing staff were very kind and welcoming, the surgical team (lead by Mr Barrett in my case) were all excellent, as were every AHP and domestic & service staff I encountered. As a nurse myself I feel it’s so important to highlight the good, especially in these times. I cannot fault anyone I encountered in my hospital admission and I am so grateful for all their help and support with my admission and all the care they took in arranging my discharge support.
