"Clean ward, exceptionally friendly ..."

About: Wansbeck Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Clean ward, exceptionally friendly and professional staff on al levels, good food, treat with respect. Staff gave 100% all of the time. Thank you for making my stay so bearable.

What could be improved

Pain control team let me down - the transition from epidural to orally administered drugs left me in a lot of pain.

Anything else?

The domestic, health care and nursing staff deserve medals. I cannot sing their praises highly enough.
