What I liked
Absolutley fantastic staff throughout all levels and departments.All so freindly and amenable,They all treated my son like he was the only patient in there .myself and my wife cannot ptaise them enough for their personal touch which goes far beyond their job spec.It has made his period of confinement easier for us all to bear.
What could be improved
We do not believe there are sufficent disabled parking spaces for long stay patients and this places extra stress on hospital visits which are already very stressful.there are a lot of spaces for able bodied people that would find it easier to use more remote parking facilities or other forms of transport to hospital.also the television and internet charges for long stay patients could be more friendly and better structured as most long term patients are on restrictive budgets whilst going through treatment and could do without this extra burden.In most cases they are a captive audience and rely on the TV as their sole source of entertainment to help them through their long days of confinement.i await your comments with interest
