"Calm, expert and good-humoured ..."

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

Calm, expert and good-humoured attention from all the staff.

Hygiene is clearly a big priority - if any infection is still lurking in the hospital, it's not the fault of the staff or the procedures.

What could be improved

The Patientline tv, radio and phone service is expensive. It's a completely separate organisation from the hospital, so no one knows much about how to use it, and no instructions are provided.

Anything else?

I have no experience of other hospitals, but the RLI gets full marks from me.
