I was in hospital mid march for 5 days for tests in 4E. The staff on the ward where all fantastic. They where run off their feet but fantastic!
My only complaint is that I had an appointment to be admitted on the Sunday at 3pm and got a phone call on the Sunday just as we where leaving to say don't come as there are no beds but come on the Monday morning.. fair enough.. went down on Monday, no beds.. same on Tuesday.. no beds then finally got into a bed at 5pm on Wednesday! I was lead to believe that this is actually a regular occurance as A&E paitents have priority for beds and they are always short on beds. I do understand this and can accept some delays but at the same time I'm not well either and I'm not coming in for no reason! I'd rather be at home in my own bed! Seems more beds and more staff are needed!
