"Nurses Brilliant, everything else a disgrace"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

My father was in intensive care for 2 weeks. The dust remained under his bed for the entire stay. The Nurses were brilliant, very helpful and honest, Consultants and Surgeons a different matter.....Have a complete 'patients and families are in the way attitude' The hospital itself is very tired, rather than spending money on a new entrance, how about updating the medical facilities? The restaurant is terrible...over priced, not 24 hours and the vending machines are continually broken. Steer clear...go elsewhere!
