"Planned op admission ward"

About: Sandwell General Hospital

I recently had a planned op at Sandwell hospital, everything was ok, the staff there were very nice to me, the porter and the healthcare assistant were both lovely (I hope they are valued) my only criticism would be, , when it came to getting undressed I think the staff could have checked on the older lady opposite me as she struggled so much I went to ask if she needed any help, I assisted her with my good arm,, they were aware of this and just carried on talking about holidays, a little bit naughty, (I wouldn't have commented on that if they had been busy).

overall not a bad experience at all for me.
