"Very disappointed and a disgrace for a so called..."

About: Leighton Hospital

What I liked

Some nurses sit and listen to your issues/problems to answer my questions

What could be improved

One of the most annoying things I found when i was in was the communication to the patient.Quite simply there is none

The patient is always the last to know on changes to medication, being discharged from physios and basic manners from a small minority of staff.

I have had bad experiences with this hospital and my last stay the worst.

Anything else?

In my opinion hospitals are meant to make you better when you are discharged.

I have gone worse since coming out and can't even get the help service to reply to my calls to discuss what happened with the doctor.

One very annoyed ex patient where I can honestly say some wards are good and caring but others don't seem to bother with you full stop
