"Nurses spending more time in the office than with patients"

About: Highbury hospital nottingham

(as the patient),

During my time in highbury, every single day and night without fail the staff would spend more time in the office than actually on the ward!

To gain there attention patients would have to form a queue and wait looking in through the window until staff decided to talk to you or hear you.

So much for patient care.

I was really sorry to hear that you felt that staff on the ward were unable to give you the time you needed to talk. Please can you let me know which ward you were on as I can contact them and ask them to reply.

Many thanks for your feedback we do appreciate you telling us when things have not gone to plan as we feel it is crucial for patients on the ward to feel they are listened to and heard.
