"efficient, but not great"

About: Bridgwater Hospital

What could be improved

staff introducing themselves to patients would be nice..... and not being made to feel like I was a major inconvenience.

Anything else?

to look into the process that allows people to be seen that are not on the computer system, after all I am entitled to NHS care anywhere in the country
