What I liked
What could be improved
attitude of arrogant consultant, communication between doctors, note taking so I didn't have to repeat everything fifty times, disrespect for private medicine, range and quality of drinks available, range of newspapers available.
Everything seems to work on a lowest common denominator process. I had my initial operation done privately and came here as an emergency admission. When I asked to be transferred tio a private hospital I became stupid. I saw 5 drs over 3 days and from beginning to end all they could say was that they didn't know about my op and could Itell them. Was the private hospital sure it was cancer!!! The implication was that I would die if I went private, said in bullying tones. Such attitudes are intolerable.
When I eventually got to a private hospital the difference was utterly stunning.
This hospital, is appalling
