"I was transferred to The Princess ..."

About: Princess Royal Hospital (Haywards Heath)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was transferred to The Princess Royal, at my request, after a very stressful, unpleasant fortnight at the Royal Sussex Hospital in Brighton. I was made to feel welcome by the nurses and saw a doctor shortly after my arrival who immediately put me at ease. Everybody kept me informed about my treatment and were happy to talk to me if I wanted any information. The meals were a huge improvement on Brighton's.

What could be improved

Can't fault the treatment I had from the nurses or doctors.

Anything else?

The attitude of the medical staff built up my confidence and although I had been unable to walk, for over a week with their encouragement I was back on my feet within a couple of days. As a result of this I was allowed home a few days later although I am still receiving treatment. I can only thank them for their help and support.
