"Fab staff on Ward 16"

About: Good Hope Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

After all the nightmares you hear about the NHS I have to say what a great ward this is and the staff are fab. Everybody was so kind and attentive.

Special credit to the nurse who went and fetched my bags from the day case unit so that I could have my belongings and settle in better. The food choice was good and I must say even tasted really good. The ward was very clean and a cleaner was always around.

Hats off to you guys working on this ward. Staying in hospital is never a joy but you made the experience a good one and I will only ever ask to go to Good Hope now.
