"I am pleased my spine has been stabilized but..."

About: Ipswich Hospital

What I liked

The care given by the Consultant was first class.

What could be improved

The nursing "care" was far below what I consider an acceptable standard.

The nurses seemed to be technically competent but there was precious little care and compassion.

Not enough qualified staff too many auxillaries.

The food is unspeakably bad and my wife had to bring in soup and sandwiches to tempt my jaded palette.

As on previous occasions it took far too long to be discharged.

Anything else?

Orthopaedic out- patient clinic is a zoo.
