"Staff did the best they could for me under..."

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

What I liked

The staff were fabulous, from trainee nurses to consultants. Treatment received was great too.

What could be improved

Although initally treated, because of bed shortages, had a long, long wait on trolleys and in corridors.

Also, although I agreed at the time, \I probably shouldnt have been sent home quite so qyuickly, but the beds were needed.

Response from Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Thank you for your kind comments about the staff at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. We are sorry you had to wait for a long time on a trolley - this is a situation we try to avoid wherever possible.
