Mytton Oak Road, Shrewsbury, England, SY3 8XQ
The only incident that I found disturbing was the next morning on the ward when some doctors were doing their rounds. The nurses were trying to place a new mattress on a patients bed and the old one was on the floor, one of the doctors made a scene by losing his temper kicking the mattress and insulting the nurses just because his path was blocked.
With great trepidation I attended the Lingen Davies Clinic I had the dreaded lung cancer which was inoperable. It was big shock as in 81 years I had little ill health and had not been in hospital since 1958. I was nervous when I met Dr Dinesh Dhinakaran but he soon put my fears to rest and I realised I was in a safe pair of hands. Naturally a sceptic who double-checks everything it was a great relief that I had found someone I could trust. The fears all drifted away and a couple of months on I feel so well that I am sure I could fly off the chandeliers if requested. Thank you RHS I am having wonderful treatment which I appreciate very much. Having lived abroad where I had to pay for medical treatment, I feel so lucky to have this free treatment on the NHS.
I was an in patient on the colorectal ward at RSH- the care I received could not be faulted- a wonderful team of professionals and axillary team. However the ward itself was very down at heel and shabby, and the very small number of toilets in this particular ward was not satisfactory. I was saddened that this great team of.people were having to look after patients in these surroundings.
I was referred to this hospital after mammogram screening showed some concerns. I was treated with dignity and compassion from the first visit and on each respective visit. I am currently undergoing chemotherapy at the Lingen Davies Unit and the staff there are absolutely wonderful always making you feel relaxed and well cared for. I am very impressed with my experience and how well a difficult time for me is being handled. Well done to all involved in my care and well done to the NHS.
