"Once I had arrived on Ward 5 I ..."

About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

Once I had arrived on Ward 5 I was examined and treated almost as if I was the only person on the Ward (Docs' rounds often 90 mins before breakfast was served!)

Nursing and housekeeping staff were excellent, helpful,cheerful and hard working. Bless them

What could be improved

Certainly the showers could benefit from some shelving, seating and coat pegs

I was admitted twice in a short time and both young medics in A&E could have listened more attentively to what I was telling them. The first one even asked what I expected him to do and why was I there. The reaction of the consultants on Ward 5 confirmed that I had done the right thing in staying!

Anything else?

A supply of extra pillows would have been much appreciated by me
