Lyndhurst Road, Worthing, West Sussex, England, BN11 2DH
I entered the system through A&E urgent MRI. I then had to return another 3 time for various scans and bloods. Yes there was a lot of waiting around but what can you expect, I wasn't the only one there, it wasn't a problem as I had taken reading material etc. The staff were very attentive and caring and polite, I couldn't fault them. At one point I saw a nurse who asked me to tell her why I was there and what the plan was for my care, at first I was a little put out wondering why she hadn't read the notes right in front of her, but then I realised she was actually checking that I was fully understanding of my journey thus far, I was very impressed. I ended up having a weeks stay in Balcombe ward, well what can I say, the care they gave was of the highest I have ever know in the NHS which in my experience is good. Nothing was to much bother, they looked after my health, dignity and mental state with great care and I'm referring to every member of staff working in that ward and all those that visited to clean or deliver food. I have never been to Worthing hospital before but I was VERY impressed I hope I never have to go back for all the right reasons but if I do I will know I'm in very good hands.
I have been receiving treatment at the Breast Care Centre and could not have been looked after with more care, compassion and understanding. My diagnosis was given honestly and my surgery arranged with little waiting time. Processes and plenty of useful information were given clearly and I felt fully part of the decision making
The care that I received in Downlands Suite in Worthing Hospital was excellent. The only problem that I had was nausea, vomiting and itching on my upper torso. On leaving hospital I was given 5 days supply of the antibiotic Trimethropine by the hospital pharmacist. Inside the box was a leaflet. This leaflet stated that a very common side effect was nausea, vomiting and itch. I had been given this antibiotic each day while I was recovering after the operation. Nobody had linked the possibility that the antibiotic could have caused the problems. This is not a criticism but a suggestion regarding the medication system.
when coming into a and e I thought that a doctor would give his opinion on what the problem is and not have a nurse come down from a ward to give their opinions has this now the norm for a and e when coming into this department
I would not hesitate to recommend Worthing Hospital,
