"Good care on Loxley ward at City hospital"

About: City Hospital campus / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was a patient on Loxley ward at the Nottingham City hospital for a hysterectomy. The standard of care which i received, from both the medical and the nursing staff, was very good. The care and attention show to me by all staff was very pleasing.

The cleanliness in the bay 1 toilet/shower room needs improving.

I think it would have been a better experience if lighter food options were available, as my appetite was not very good and the food choices were more suitable for "well" people. Chicken soup and other lighter meals would have been better options than roast dinners.
