"Not the best"

About: Ipswich Hospital

Just had to stay in the Martlesham ward and have to say the care was terrible. Waiting times for medication was over 2 hours and the "health care assistant" was very rude and obnoxious when asked very simple questions. Made to feel like you were giving them hassle for ringing the bell Couldn't wait to get out of there go be honest it was awful
