West Smithfield, London, EC1A 7BE
I was recently an inpatient in Barts who had cardiac surgery. The hospital is spotlessly clean and the hygiene standards excellent. The majority of staff were kind and caring - especially the Health Care Support Workers on the Ward as well as the catering team. Regrettably, I found the Junior Doctors' attitude inexcusable. They rushed around Intensive Care talking very loudly about individual patients. I had them discuss (while standing at the foot of my bed) the death of a patient & the terrible health condition of another. In addition, they hurried away 'gleefully' discussing how quick the round had taken. It was awful and really upsetting. Someone in authority should remind them that patients in Intensive Care are vulnerable human beings who (although are physically weak) are mentally strong and can hear and understand what is being said!
Very efficient service for blood tests
My husband recently had an angiogram and stent at Barts hospital after a sudden unexpected admission to hospital with chest pain. This was his first experience of hospital of which he was terrified and needle phobic. The staff on 3D on 5/11/2018 were all very kind, compassionate and understanding of his phobias and patiently explained everything and gave him time to understand the process from the health care assistants, staff nurses and advanced nurse practitioner they all provided an excellent service. The doctors did a wonderful job and he is now home recovering. Barts was very clean, the staff professional at all times as a nurse of many years in the NHS they were all exceptional.
The hospital met all my needs good treatment and best careing and thank you NHS and all the team
