"Chest surgery Bart's - Vicary Ward 30/1013"

About: St Bartholomew's Hospital

Anything else?

Have just spent a week on Vicary Ward recovering from chest surgery at Bart's. The nursing staff and surgeons were wonderful, very attentive and clearly dedicated in what they do, some are clearly more skilled than others however, as this is a teaching hospital I thought was only to be expected. I believe the QE2 building is being sold off which would explain the very rundown condition of the building and facilities however, the team made a wonderful job of the operation and recovery was made as pleasant as possible. Congratulations to everyone I met while there, they are doing an excellent job despite rather disjointed processes and old fashioned facilities.
