Permanent staff were friendly and helpful, agency staff perhaps less so.
I enjoyed some of the weekend meals, some variety. There is a lot of activities going on and opportunities to do some gardening, the garden is also a nice place to talk to other patients. Got on well with some of the staff, but sometimes found it difficult with others. Were issues with the ward phone and not getting very good signal to make private calls. The doors are very noisy which makes it difficult to sleep, sleep is something I am entitled to. My sleep was also disturbed by another patient being noisy in the middle of the night. With puddings custard was the main option, should be alternatives such as double cream offered which I requested and this is now offered on the ward which is a positive.
The PAT dog is excellent. Some staff surly and ignored patients - night agency staff only. Some staff went out of their way to be kind, great stuff, you know who you are. All the gym staff were excellent and you all made a real difference. A pity there was no gym on the weekends. Stop people smoking in the grounds. Thanks again, big love to you all! X
I felt it was the ideal ward for my husband making his recovery speedy. I was saddened that so many of his clothes went missing, which seemed to add to his worries. He still talks favourably about a lot of the staff that cared for him.
