Admitted via the accident unit. Had really good care for whole of stay. Lovely environment but would have liked to be able to pay for a single room, an amenity bed scheme would make trust money too. Very good nurses and doctors, all kind and helpful. Food was a bit grim especially the breakfasts. I brought my own as I don't like soggy cornflakes and cold cotton wool bread rolls. There was limited fridge space for patients so if more people wanted their yoghurt stored it would not be possible. Did not seem to get many hot drinks as in other hospitals - nothing before 8am even though we s were woken at 6am and nothing between lunch and supper. Good there was a coffee shop to get decent sandwiches from. Poor information about services and tv. No headphones to borrow so very boring until my husband could bring them in. Beds were very comfortable though. Chaplain came to see me even though I had not asked. Not sure he should have been told my details without asking me. He was nice though. Could do with seats along the long stretches of corridor for people to rest. Artwork on the walls would be nice too -our local hospital displays local artists work and always has fresh flowers in public areas.Difficult to tell one ward from another and hard to find way around. All very clean.
