Car parking, minimum charge £3.00, if only for 30mins. Whilst my Mother is in a en suite room, the water is continually cold, care assistants offer to fetch some. Doors to wards (now called gates) are already broken. Hospital cages left in corridors, not locked away in the cupboards provided. Admitted Thursday 29/5/14. Friday 30/5/14 was not kept informed, only hearing a Doctor talking did we find out what was happening and then told it was Friday. Moved from AAU to a ward, but left for two hours in a wheel chair, with belongings sat on lap. The weekend seems to be managed on minimum staff. After complaining to a Oncology co-ordinator, and able to wait for Doctor's rounds things have started to get sorted today. Televisions are not available for hire, as in Emersons hospital and previously frenchay. No public restaurant, only machines and League of Friends, which sale out of sandwiches by lunch times and only open weekends 2pm to 5pm. As the Chief of the NHS, we odd not want these large hospitals, need more be said.
