"I was in for three weeks following ..."

About: The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was in for three weeks following an op to fuse my spine on Jackson Burrows ward and the care was faultless. The nursing staff are amazing and work so hard.

What could be improved

The hospital is incredibly run down and not that clean. It really needs updating.

Also the food was completely inedible. I really dont think much of the Steamplicity menu!

I did find some of the nurses to be very rough when I was in a great deal of pain, which upset me.
