"The A & E and MAU were fine, ..."

About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The A & E and MAU were fine, fairly clean with the staff helpful informative and cooperative, however I was then moved to LIme Ward!!!!

What could be improved

Where do I start,

Following the transfer I arrived on Lime Ward at around 1.30pm and was allocated a bed, I was finally seen by one of the nursing staff at around 4.15 to see if I was OK, this nurse shortly sliiped over on a wet floor shortly afterwards.

later that evening when the drug trolley came around I was completey ignored, the nurse in question came nowhere near my bed, I did later ask for some paracetamol, which took approx 2 hours to arrive, despite asking several times I was told that everybody was really busy. Not what you expect really is it ???
