"All the staff who treated me were ..."

About: Barnet Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

All the staff who treated me were friendly and respectful and listened to what I had to say. I saw much kindness to ill patients around me and feel I would have confidence to be in Barnet hospital any time. I was in only for a night.

What could be improved

I found it a little strange that the nurses could not even give one a paracetamol tablet or a sleeping pill without first asking a doctor. I would have expected their qualifications adequat for such small decisions.
