The gynae/oncologist consultants are fabulous, spot on with knowledge and work well as a team. They are caring, honest and supportive.
In outpatients, staff are also extremely good, appointments are not often delayed and patients are not rushed.
Theatre staff were marvellous on the day of the op, as were HDU nurses who were there the whole time I was on their ward.
On the ward, things were a bit different: some nurses were very kind and caring, trying to cope in a difficult, pandemic environment. However, there were some who really stayed away from patients as much as possible, such that patients felt that any questions or emotional/mental health issues could not be addressed - it was a lonely few days.
In my opinion, a lot of thought needs to go towards The catering - the food was deplorably cooked/overcooked, although the variety on offer was quite good. Maybe less choice and better preparation?
