About: Southend Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was in the gynae ward and the staff were so helpful, they went out of their way to help me,

the only thing i was uoset about was being told on arrival i was to be the first on the theatre list for the next morning, then when the theatrs started i was almost ata the end, i am a highly nervous person for theatre and was on the verge of discharging myself as it was 4.15 when i got taken down to have the op.

after though the staff were excellant.

What could be improved

communication between the surgeons and the staff to keep the patients awaitng theatre slots more informed.

Anything else?

the food was ok, mind you i didnt want to eat as i felt too much pain,
