"fantastic care on ward 18"

About: Leighton Hospital

I was admitted on to ward 18 due to a problem with my blood sugars when I first arrived the ward looked old and worn I wandered what I had come in to. I was unsure about my stay I have had bad experiences on other wards and I wasnt very nice to staff which I appologise for. My faith in the NHS has been restored thanks to the staff on ward 18 I give them 11/10 not once did I have to wait for my bell to be answered they were prompt and polite. A special thankyou to the nurse and the little bubbly care assistant no matter how busy you were you talked to us all and made my stay a pleasure . Thankyou ward 18
