"They got the job done which I ..."

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

They got the job done which I went in for.

What could be improved

Despite having an appointment, it seemed like I was waiting for christmas before being finally given a bed, and another eternity before someone actually did something.

Anything else?

A doctor gave me medication directly into my hand through a needle which was inserted earlier. A nurse came along about 10 minutes later trying to do the same thing! I queried this and the nurse walked away, talked to the doctor and left me alone. I don't know what they said.

As I had no idea what was in the syringe I can't think what would have happened if I had been asleep!
