"I was transferred to this hospital ..."

About: University Hospital Lewisham

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was transferred to this hospital from QEII in Woolwish ( A&E) and they looked after me well for one night.

What could be improved

Most of the nurses are OK and competent, but some nurses are bit rough in terms of giving me intravenous drips. I wish they could be more gentle with it.

Anything else?

Discharge Unit at the hospital was a bit of chaos and I hoped some staff at the unit minded their language better when they spoke to patients. No one wishes to be bossed around by a loud and intimidating staff.
