My partner has recently been an inpatient on ward B5. He required exploratory hip surgery for an infection. I can honestly say, i was impressed by all the staff: doctors, nurses, housekeeping, porters etc. All professional, courteous, hard working..and most importantly ...kind. As an ex nurse myself ( many years qualified) i have nothing but praise. Thank you B5 and staff who were there to help when my partner needed this.
2 of the 4 car park payment machines were out of action in the main atrium. Because I had to queue to pay for about 10 minutes, I ended up having to pay £2.60. If I'd been able to get to the machine straight away, I wouldn't have had to pay, which is a bit frustrating!
Pleased that my dignity was respected at all times by an assistant nurse. The procedure was well staffed and carried out quickly and painlessly. I had been anxious and was told in advance that I could take diazepam. The injection into my hip was through the groin area. This was a surprise ad I had presumed that I would lie on my side . however on thinking about it .... It does make sense that the hip has to be open and flat. Good work by this Doctor yesterday. I was so relieved by the instant reduction in pain. However it has come back temporarily this morning. Hope it will get better within the week as expected.
The hospital and it’s facilities are good and clean, sometimes parking can be difficult, even for blue badge holders. All of the staff and the treatment they give are excellent. Occasionally my appointments are changed/cancelled without much notice, but not often. The only faults I can give are parking, waiting times and shortness of staff, however I understand these problems are present at most hospitals across the country.
