Response from Medway Maritime Hospital

Thank you for your feedback about your recent stay at the hospital. I am pleased to hear you found staff nice and caring and take on board your point about lighting, although sometimes, this is unavoidable. I am sorry to hear that the food did not meet your expectations. We have undertaken some work on improving hospital food, both quality and choice, and will be continuing that work to ensure that we can try to meet all patients requirements. Thank you for your kind comments about Pembroke Ward, the staff will be really pleased with your comments. We hope you are doing well. Glyn Scott Nutrition Nurse Specialist glyn.scott@medway.nhs.uk
