"Everyone works so hard to do their ..."

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Everyone works so hard to do their job often in difficult circumstances. my team of docters were very proffesional and in my opinion gave first class treatment. The fact I can use my hand after my accident is testament to this. the nurses gave me very good help when required but I was more able than some to look after my own needs so tried not to bother them too much.The cleaning staff I saw were hard working and tried their best but I feel they may be trying to do too much in a short time.all in all I can only praise evey one I met and I am grateful to every one of them. ( a big thanks to every one working on ward 9)

What could be improved

Car parking is in short supply and expensive I think some kind of permit for patients who have to make frequent visits should be introduced.

Anything else?

After my discharge I had many out patient appointments with the dressing clinics, physio and hand clinics and would just like to say thanks to all the people involved I can't fault you.

Response from Pinderfields General Hospital

Thank you for the kind comments. With regard to car parking, we appreciate that space is at a premium at times, but will be providing significantly more spaces at the new hosapitals in Pontefract and Wakefield. Patients attending frequently can buy reduced rate permits via the hospital general office.
