"All the staff regardless of grade ..."

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

All the staff regardless of grade or position were polite, helpful and I always felt like a patient and not a number. I have had various visits to Cheltenham General since moving here 12 years ago and have always encounterd throughly professional staff. I've never been left waiting around and the service I've received is efficient and effective. I think some people forget how busy and pushed to the limit the NHS is and some just like to moan for the sake of it. Cheltenham is a good hospital providing good services - we should think ourselves lucky.

What could be improved

The only thing is the age old problem of parking but I believe they are trying to rectify this at the moment.

Anything else?

At a recent visit with my child to A&E we were in and out within 40 minutes - what more can I say - fantastic!
