"Harbledown Ward"

About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital

The ward was horrific. Not only were there no chairs for visitors, they have the admin staffs desks based in the patients rooms. This caused sleepless nights due to the high noise levels, especially when the staff decided to have a giggle and mess around. There were personal conversations beingheld that I would rather have not have heard.

Adequate lunch/dinner was not provided and very minimal.
