"I was admitted under the care ..."

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted under the care of the gynaecology team. (Professor Cardozo) The medical and nursing staff were professional and caring, one of the consultant team of two visited daily to check on my progress after the operation. I do not think the care could have been better.

The ward was spotlessly clean (Gynae ward) thanks to a dedicated cleaner who has worked on the same ward for many years.

What could be improved

Luckily I was not hungry as I am afraid the food was not good, but food is not the core business of the NHS, so it is unimportant.

Anything else?

I think this hospital provides an excellent service. Keep up the good work.
