Generally the hospital is very good. Casualty is very busy but the staffed coped very well. All the staff were very competant and good quality.
There were certain delays at diagnostic services, I am not blaming anyone for that, it is just the ways of the hospital. Any delays that did happen were acceptable, as my problems weren't life threatening.
The standard of cleanliness was reassuring.
The staff were very diligent and dealt with difficult patients well. I was impressed with what I saw around me.
Nothing could really be practically improved. I checked in to xray and had to wait 4.5 hours, but I just accepted that I had to wait as I was not an emergency.
I had serious thoracic pain, which has since reponded well to treatment. I was kept in overnight on ward 43 due to an over caucious doctor, but in all honesty he was perfectly right to do so.
