"excellent care"

About: Basildon University Hospital

What I liked

i was unexpectedly admitted to the james mackenzie ward during june this year.if anybody has the misfortune to be admitted to hospital with a heart problem - then i cannot imagine there could be any other ward that could be better than this one.

the ward was spotlessly clean,the beds and equipment seemed modern and the care and attention i received from the doctors and nurses could not have been better -- even if a doctor or nurse was off duty , when they went past my bed they would still stop and ask how i was progressing.the people that cleaned the ward were very friendly and seemed happy with their job and the man that served us tea and coffee was a tonic on his own.i have since been back to basildon hospital for check ups and i am sure thanks to the treatment i recieved i have made a good recovery.

What could be improved

there was a disruptive patient when i was in the ward and do not think the staff recieved enough support from the security section
