About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

(as a relative),

What I liked

The staff are very kind and usually quite informative. The hospital is quite clean but there is always room for improvement

The care given once you are in the system is excellent

When you eventually get to see the doctor you have a feeling of confidence in them and know that they will help you

What could be improved

When you go to A&E there must be a system for pain relief which can be given much quicker.

If a patient is not an emergency they should be referred to a GP. Maybe a Shropdoc could be on site and available in a wait system to see the patients that are not really emergencies as there does seem to be a lot of them and if you are behind them and in real need you are a little agitated which can sometimes be transferred to the hospital staff

The nurse that you see initially could be a little more thorough in their assessment as it seem if you turn up you are just in a queue pretty much regardless which does include children
