Admitted on two consecutive weekends with suspected appendicitis. The staff were fantastic especially Sister Sally, Diane, Pat, Christina and Louise to name a few. The ward was clean and friendly. Unfortunately due to being admitted on Fridays I feel the frustration for me was that everywhere seems to work with fewer staff over the weekend. Therefore trying to get Scans and blood results was a nightmare. I am sure this frustrates the staff as much as the patients. I also think it's a national problem. The NHS really should be a 24/7 service.
