"Musgrove and Bristol hospitals"

About: Bristol Royal Infirmary Musgrove Park Hospital / Accident and emergency South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

I had a heart attack last October. I was taken to Musgrove by a brilliant Ambulance crew. I felt my stay on ward in Musgrove Park Hospital was appalling - food I ate was awful, and one nurse extremely bossy about what I ate. I thought the doctors were okay.

I then moved to Bristol Royal Infirmiary for a bypass operation. The treatment was fantastic - hospital and staff the best! Follow up classes to be organised by Musgrove Park - but I am still waiting to hear from them.
