"Positive experience"

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

My stay in ward 16 was on the whole a positive experience, my last stay in hospital was 25 years ago so was not really sure what to expect. I was treated very well by all members of staff who were always very busy but very professional. I was kept informed about my treatment and procedures and felt able to ask questions. The room was clean, warm and light, food was well presented and fresh and I had regular hot drinks.

Only worry, was that I was not offered pain relief before what I found to be a very painful procedure. I was given some after I had asked for it to be stopped.

The general surroundings of the hospital were good, did find the state of the lift up to the ward off putting as a first impression. They looked dirty and uncared for.
