About: Basildon University Hospital

Re November 2015. I spent 10 days in hospital I am very greatful I had 2 teams of doctors I was very well looked after the nurses and care assistance were all very good. All but 1 abrupt and stressed nurse! But my overal experience in the wards was pleasant. I do think as always if staff communicated more between collegees and patients it would save a lot of frustration! I do think the catering staff could take that little extra time to make toast in the morning rather than bread and jam. Not wanting much to eat when being ill a little toast is all you can eat or manage. One member of staff did do every one toast at the weekend and they were like a angel. So from a little more time and effort means so much! I would like to thank all the staff and all their hard work thank you!
