About: Peterborough City Hospital

This is my third operation in this new hospital. And each stay has been the same. I'm in here right now after a major operation. Yesterday i asked to be moved as they had put me with a couple of patients with dementia i think lovely ladys but they needed specialist care. These nurses were trying to cope but it so difficult. For them. Today was worse i had to keep asking them for a wash and my bed was full of blood. This happened at 11 30.

I need to get up and walk around to prevent blood clots this didn't happen till 6 o'clock. These nurses on this ward do a fantastic job. But who ever is in charge hasn't got a clue. I will never come in again for an operation its so bad I want to leave now but only had a full hysterectomy yesterday hopefully get out tommoro
