I spent two days on the gynaecology ward in August 2012 My operation was on Sunday. The anaesthetist was very cold and actually tried to persuade me to have a block post operatively and seemed annoyed when I said I wanted a PCA. I did not see a doctor post op and was in so much pain I insisted on seeing someone at 4am on the Monday. I was discharged on the Tuesday morning and given Clexane to inject myself. I was not given a sharps box but told to take the used syringes to the chemist (who subsequently refused to take them). The food was absolutely awful. I would not recommend Birchington Ward to anyone. The staff were very busy and I feel for them but they were completely lacking in any empathy and I felt like I was "on a conveyor belt". I can only now face writing about my experience and would hate to be admitted to your hospital again.
