"The nurse practitioners and doctors ..."

About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute)

(as the patient),

What I liked

The nurse practitioners and doctors and the receptionists staff in the rheumatology department

are very good indeed.

What could be improved

I was fined £40 for overstaying in a short stay car park despite the fact I have a blue badge and there was nowhere else to park. Daylight robbery!

Anything else?

On entering the hospital one is faced with a cafe which is very busy with people eating and patients, visitors and staff alike are eating there. I saw patients being pushed through the cafe on trolleys. `horrible. `it looks a dirty area and one thinks "no wonder there is MRSA" They shoul get rid of the cafe (there is one downstairs) and smarten up the area. Make it look like a hospital not a shopping centre
