"General observations"

About: The Great Western Hospital

Anything else?

Taken in with serious symptoms can not fault care and attention, both in A & E and medical assessment. First class. For outpatient appointments the waiting time is not acceptable, example went to my GP in February 2012, back problem he requested a MRI scan, MRI scan August 2012, operation April 2013, I feel the operation was successful but still awaiting follow up. My experience of care on the wards is by and large without fault, there are a few exceptions. Keep up the good work GWH

Response from The Great Western Hospital

Thanks for letting us know about your experiences. We are very proud of the care we provide, and your positive comments mean a lot to us. I am sorry about the time you were kept waiting though. We are recruiting additional staff at the moment, and that should help to speed things up in the future.
