What I liked
Cosmetically the hospital is set in a lovely area with beautiful gardens etc.
Good times for visiing.
What could be improved
Communication from hospital staff to patients and family members was extremely poor indeed.
Whilst my father was in Lings Bar, he was not very happy and became quite low in mood.
It was very evident from myself and other family members visiting that there was a lack of duty of care . eg; my father had slippers put on the wrong feet, never had his socks put on , He reported that some staff were quite rude in the way he was spoken to.
He was never offered to have a bath there at all,despite being there for a number of weeks. Not even sure that they have shower facilities there.
Since leaving this hospital he has improved in mood 100%
It is quite evident in the evenings that there are not enough staff available on the wards .
I would not want my father to return to this hospital at all unless dramatic changes were made to the running of the hospital.
