"The doctors and nurses were excellent. ..."

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

(as the patient),

What I liked

The doctors and nurses were excellent. Overworked but always maintained a professional attitude. There were only one or two, who "matron" would have pulled up.and these were the younger inexperienced people.

What could be improved

Needed a drink on waking about 6.30 am and late evening. Only stayed for short time so didnt get to see an actual main ward. But was very grateful for the care and attention.

Anything else?

didnt like the way your age was called out every single time the shift was changed or a doctor appeared with their staff. I understand that they have to know but everyone else doesnt.
