"I felt in safe, professional, ..."

About: Cheltenham General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I felt in safe, professional, caring and experienced hands

What could be improved

more access to consultant and/or senior doctor

Anything else?

I'm amazed by some of the comments on this page; I found all staff friendly and helpful; cleanliness really good (thanks to contract staff who really seemed to care); food bearable (and I was in on and off for about 3 months). Everything would of course be even better with loads more staff - but that involves political change - and the staff I encountered on two different wards were excellent.
