"Satisfactory, not an unpleasant day."

About: Good Hope Hospital

What I liked

I went for a chest x-ray. Soon after entering, someone approached, and showed me to the correct department. I can not think of anything that could help more, for navigating corridors.

After a short wait, my name was called by a human, not machine. The x-ray was taken efficiently. Since it could potentially detect cancer, there was no friendly conversation, rather an appropriate gravitas.

What could be improved

Shelter or seats outside for those awaiting a taxi. Within cost restraints, it was all satisfactory.

Response from Patient Engagement Office and Project Manager, Heart Of England NHS Foundation Trust We are preparing to make a change

Dear Anonymous

Thank you for your feedback. A lot of work has been carried out on helping patients/visitors find their way around our hospital sites so I am glad to hear it is working effectively.

I will ensure your feedback about shelters/seats outside for people to use whilst waiting for their transport is passed to our Estates Department to invesigate if this is a possibility.

Thank you again.
