"My first visit to hospital for 30 years"

About: Southmead Hospital

I was admitted for 4 days for an infection . The care I received was top notch the staff are obviously under pressure but never let me know. Nothing was too much trouble from my admission at A & E to the discharge lounge everyone was helpful and cheerful. The consultant deserves a special mention they have a fabulous bed manner that made me relax at once and was able to give me a very quick diagnoses that was confirmed later by ct scan thank you all you are a great team who brings the building alive
