"Nothing but praise"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Anything else?

I have nothing but praise for the rsh during my recent cardiac treatment as an in-patient. Not only was the treatment careful and effective, staff were invariably courteous, kind and efficient. The food is now very good, and fresh, and the hospital sparkling clean. The beds were very comfortable, with clean linen every day. The only difficulty, was that the long wait for my out-patient appointment (cancelled and re-scheduled twice over four months) meant that by the time I attended I had already been treated as an emergency, had received three stents, some further tests and re-habilitation treatment, of which the doctor who finally saw me was entirely unaware. So some communication problems there..

Response from Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to provide your feedback about the care you received from cardiology at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. I am really pleased to hear that you have nothing but praise for your recent care and I will ensure that this is shared with the ward. I am very sorry that you faced problems with your outpatient appointment. We are working hard to improve our outpatient booking and scheduling system but clearly this is not happening quickly enough to prevent the problems that you have experienced. NHS Choices does not share your contact details with us, so if you would like us to look into this further then please do contact our Patient Advice and Liaison Service on pals@sath.nhs.uk
