"The expertise and concern of all staff alleviated..."

About: East Surrey Hospital

What I liked

Clarification of medical preocedures to be performed was given by the consultants and nursing staff at all times. Important to me as a patient.

Concern regarding my medical condition and comfort was expressed by all staff from arrival to departure.

What could be improved

The noise of snoring in the night!

Anything else?

Invitation letter to attend hospital should state that medication should be in the original packaging.

My own box of pills was not acceptable.

Further to this response we have now just started a piece of working reviewing all the letters we send to patients. The main purpose of this is to ensure that all letters we send are accurate and understandable.

Frustrations like the one above will be addressed by this work.
