"Went in full of trepidation and came out full of..."

About: Peterborough City Hospital

What I liked

Nursing staff helpful, attentive and very efficient. Surgeon explained procedure and answered questions. He came to see me in recovery and could not have been more helpful.

I have been in hospital for prolonged treatment in the past, but never one with such nice staff. I would have no hesitation in having further treatment at PCH and will happily reccomend it to others.

What could be improved

Very little! Maybe larger cups of tea/coffee to save nurses legwork. Less paperwork as staff seem to spend an enormouse amount of time filling in different forms with the same information.

Anything else?

I have stayed at 4 star hotels that have far worse services than provided by PCH.
