"This hospital seems to be run for the staff ......"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

Anything else?

The doctor was clearly in a hurry. I'm still unsure what my diagnosis is. Car parking in a nightmare.......unless you are staff. Plenty of staff car parks but not much for the poor patients. Reception staff seem focused on chatting to each other and clinical colleagues to have any time to acknowledge patients. All too typical of what the NHS is like now - patients are no longer the priority.
