"When I arrive at Ward 22, to see ..."

About: Wansbeck Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

When I arrive at Ward 22, to see the On call register, the staff where very welcoming.

I was give the test for MRSA straight away, the ward was exceptianally clean.

When it was decided I was to be admitted all staff and Dr where lovely, I spent 3 days on this ward and all staff where out standing

What could be improved

my only little concern was, if a patient has been reffered to see the doctor, dont put them on a open ward when they are pregnant and are going to terminate the preganancy for the 3 time, because they had a one night stand, it doesnt help some one who is having problems getting pregnant to hear this

Anything else?

My experience with all staff on Ward 22 was fanatstic. They where professional, understanding, and caring

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Thank you for your comments posted on the NHCT website regarding the care afforded to you at Wansbeck General Hospital. It was very kind of you to write and compliment the staff on their care.

The issue you have highlighted has been noted and we are currently trying to improve the facilities to provide single room accommodation where appropriate. It is always appreciated to receive patient feedback and I thank you for raising your concern. I will ask our chief matron to discuss this with the staff.

Thank you for taking the time to write.
