"X-ray, A&E & Surgery ..."

About: East Surrey Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

X-ray, A&E & Surgery departments all extremely kind and sympathetic to my injury and pain. I was delt with promptly and kept informed.

What could be improved

Ward care was unsettling, I was mainly independant, however others on the ward were not and witnessing their care was disturbing. Some nurses obviously not capable of the compassion and patients required. Foregien nurses talking to eachother in there mother tongues to each other over patients also very unsettling.
