"had a private room, and the surgeon ..."

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

had a private room, and the surgeon explained in fully what was going to be done, the 1st time for that.

What could be improved

1.More time to speak to your consultant and get better information.

2. When I asked nurses of pain relief medication, I waited almost 2 hours, and in the end just took my own.

3. The nurses did not check or change the covering, until a friend of mine started to do it and a lovely nurse walked in (she had just come on duty) and took over.

4. Discharge was a nightmare and was forgotten in my room for almost 4 hours.

5. was not given addtional dressing.

Anything else?

Over all most of the staff were lovely, but some can make the exprience really uncomfortable.
