"The staff on SACU were fantastic. ..."

About: Leicester General Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

The staff on SACU were fantastic. My husband was there for 30 days. We met every member of staff working on the unit and there wasn't a single one who was rude or dismissive. They were all kind, informative and friendly.

What could be improved

They are under-staffed and need more qualified nurses.

Anything else?

Thank you to everyone on SACU, doctors, nurses, even the cleaners. Absolutely fantastic!
