I spent three days in ward 26 over Christmas. I had a TURP operation on Christmas eve. The treatment that I had was excellent and the cleanliness of the Treatment Centre and the ward was first class. The food was good, and we even had a full Christmas Dinner! Yes, there is always something to moan about if you really look hard enough. People complaining about the parking ticket machine not working or the not quite immaculate magazine in the waiting area should really put these things into perspective. Running a hospital like this requires hundreds of staff. The ward that I was in was very busy , but the staff were calm efficient and smiling, even though they were giving up their Christmas to go into work so that we, the patients, could be treated. I think they are doing a fantastic job, sometimes with very difficult patients.
