"The nurses on Simpson 2 ward are ..."

About: City Hospital campus

(as the patient),

What I liked

The nurses on Simpson 2 ward are fantastic i cannot fault the care i received in the 2 weeks i was on the ward.All of the staff worked really hard and worked well as a team.The ward was very clearly well managed and i think your all a credit to the NHS.

What could be improved

Its not nice being dragged out of bed at 7.30am to have the beds made especially when you have had no sleep all night and feeling very poorly.Toilets on the ward were filthy most of the time.

Anything else?

Drs need to listen to you more instead of just jumping ahead and showing more concern when the patient is very upset instead of just looking and walking off!!Its the nurses who need a large pay rise not Drs as its theses girls that do all the hard graft,they never get a single minute!
