"As a long term patient I was treated ..."

About: Luton & Dunstable Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

As a long term patient I was treated the whole time with great dignity and respect by consultants, nurses and cleaning staff. I would like to thank all, I stayed on 3 different wards and the experience was much the same on each. Then I was transferred to a big london hospital, I could not say that I recieved anywhere near the same treatment and was so glad to return to the L&D. Nobody likes to be in hospital, but if I had to I would definately choose the L&D this from experience.

What could be improved

More services at the L&D so I wouldn't have had to be transferred to another hospital.

Food could also be improved.
