What I liked
I was in ward 8b for five days and I found the nurses and staff were brilliant. Also I was very impressed with the catering. The menu's were excellent especially chefs recipe and the soups were very very good. The hospital itself is rather shabby and the window areas were very dirty but mostly it was kept clean and tidy. I know you have to keep patients warm but the heat in the ward was sometimes unbearable when the the huge radiators blast out full heating. Surely this must breed germs, maybe an extra blanket would suffice. I was quite lucky as I was able to be near a window and get some air.
