"Quick, efficient, and sympathetic ..."

About: Barnsley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Quick, efficient, and sympathetic service I received on arrival. I fell on the ice/snow at home and broke my wrist! The nurses were excellent, I was out within 2 hrs.

What could be improved

My niece couldn't find anywhere to park after she dropped me off.

Anything else?

I was given pain relief while I waited. But on my second visit 9 days later, I had to have my wrist re-set, and could have done with gas and air!

Response from Barnsley Hospital

Your comments are much appreciated Linda- as with many hospital's the recent bad weather made for a very busy A&E dept, but it was a great team effort to get patients' treated as soon as possible. In terms of parking in and around the hospital, we hope a new surface car park nearby, currently being constructed, will be available early in 2010.
