What I liked
I went into the Thoracic ward D2 for surgery on January 30th and was a little apprehensive after getting some negative feedback beforehand, but this was totally unfounded as I couldn't have had better care. Everyone working on the ward .. doctors, nurses, orderlies etc were very kind and helpful. What I noticed mostly is that D2 is a very happy ward .. lots of laughter, which is the best tonic when you are unwell or recovering from surgery. If I have any criticism at all it's that it's far too overheated.. as is most of the hospital. Surely it would be better to throw a couple more blankets on the beds and open a window or two instead.. not only cheaper but healthier as germs just breed in such overheated conditions.
What could be improved
Turn the heating down a notch or two.
