About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

Anything else?

My husband was rushed to Addenbrooks after suffering a suspected heart attack. Afer waiting for 5 hours, being moved from corridoor to corridoor for the results of a blood test... was then discharged .... Staff ... well there were hardly any. It was dirty and I will now be opting for a private health plan.

Response from Addenbrooke's Hospital

We are so sorry that your experience was so poor that you have lost faith in the hospital. Without knowing the detail of when your husband was a patient and who he saw it is very difficult to offer a meaningful reply. From a cleanliness point of view all areas are spot checked and subjected to ongoing audits. I am not aware of any present issues regarding the cleanliness of the Emergency Department but I have shared your posting with the Senior Clinical Nurse and Estates team so that they are aware of your concerns. If you are able to contact PALS at (01223) 216756 or pals@addenbrookes.nhs.uk with more information we would be pleased to look into this for you.
