"I was a patient in the DTC and ..."

About: Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was a patient in the DTC and Basing Unit in 2007 and 2008. With the consultants and nurses help I breezed through what was one of the most difficult times in my life. Thanks to their efficiency and professionalism I am still around to see my daughter growing up. Mine was an experience that can leave a lot of people emotionally crippled. But besides a great standard of care they also offer their patients the much needed moral support. It felt like I always had someone to hold my hand or offer a shoulder to cry on. This is something that often gets forgotten, but not in our hospital.

Anything else?

Very clean, good facilities and ... can't complain about the food either.
