"shirt stay 21st december"

About: Leighton Hospital

Had a short stay overnight 21st December. Triage and waiting area slow as per usual, didn't really act like they cared until I got to the GP area. After being admitted to ward 2 the treatment was fantastic. Friendly staff who were not afraid to have fun with impatients while keeping in mind of their needs. Service has improves a bit, good job :)
