I was taken ill with breathing problems on the 16/12/13 and can only praise the treatment and care that I was given throughout my illness. From the paramedics who first attended, the staff in A//e who gave initial treatment I had a long wait on a trolley for a bed but was kept informed of the reason and staff ensured that I was as comfortable as possible. When taken up to ward 3 I was quickly made comfortable by several members of staff all who where involved introduced themselves and made sure I knew where things where. Every body the consultant, nurses,care staff and the cleaners all showed professional, caring, and friendly attitudes throughout my stay until the 19/12/23. I would however criticize the the way the pharmacy. deals with medicine that is required for a patient to take home. I was informed at 9am that I had recovered enough to return home. I then remained blocking a bed until after 3pm waiting for 2 boxes of tablet to be sent up, while I understand that some time would elapse before they received the order with the computer sending the message this would be only a short time, During the time I was waiting for the tablets someone may have been waiting on an uncomfortable trolley becoming another breech of your own targets.
