I came in for a Hip replacement and found that the parking is too far away, doctors do not comunicate with anybody i.e other staff and myself. I was in a single room to which is soul distroying if you have no entertainment. Also when in my bed you can see the opposite sex in the room across from you striping off which is not plesant and not fair on all patiants , dignity is out the window, you might as well mix us up in a 4 beded bay. when you ask a nurse for help all you here is its not my patiant. I thought its one ward and one team. The only staff i can say who does look after you are the health care assistants, and i feel they are abused by many nurses as you lay there listening to nurses on there case. When i came in the move maker was very helpful When taken to X-ray the lifts were very dirty, the X-ray porters were great as they cheered me up and waited to take me back which was a nice personal touch. I have now recovered from my hip replacement. I would like to see the following improved: Single rooms, you should not see the opposite sex in there rooms as its uncomfortable each four rooms should be all male, and the next four should be all female. doctors need to communicate more with there patiants and other staff. roll on the new car park. visitor restraunt is needed not costa coffee on every turn and the shop needs to be looked at as this is not a motorway service station.
