"Nursing Staff"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital

I was recently admitted for elective surgery. The theatre staff, anaesthetist and especially my surgeon were amazing and I would trust them again without question. I was an exceptionally nervous patient and could not have been reassured and cared for any better than I was. The food was fine and the room was spotless. Everything went ahead as planned. The only fault I have is sadly towards the nursing staff. Without wanting to go into detail, they need to be reminded that the doors of the rooms are not soundproof.
