I spent 12 days in this hospital. The first 10 were on HDU. I was looked after so well. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I was then moved to ward 2. This was not such a good experience. I don't eat puddings and never opted for them when choosing my meals however on the second night in ward two the server got stroppy and told me I had ordered pudding and slapped down a bowl of chocolate sponge with custard. I just threw it in the bin. I was worried that if I was seen to have not eaten my desert I would have to stay for even longer and I was not so happy in ward 2. Discharge day was a nightmare. I was told quite early that I was finally getting out but I did not get out until after 5pm. I had rung my wife and said I should be out soon but was kept waiting a further two hours. I think the hospital should tighten up their discharge procedures. I needed to give myself injections and had to be shown how to do them this is what held me up. I was being injected daily so I could have been shown long before my discharge day.
