The Nurses and Doctors are great they taking time with the Patients and talks to family member...
Down side the Hospital should in force the zero tolerance for Smoking n NHS Grounds (as it's forbidden by law) special if you see Patients sitting in roll Chairs with Oxygen pipes in the Nose and a drip in the Arm Monitor for the Heart but Smoking Cigarettes which them made I'll in the first place
Also to long Waiting times Doctors and Nurses are rushed of their Feet

A n E had a bad experience n it's not the first time at this hospital felt really disappointed by the gynaecologist who sent me home wrongly diagnoised.

Really good service and great people in the vascular dept, thanks to Katy and her assistant .. always good from me .!!!

Ophthalmology department I was seen at my appointment time were very welcoming and professional x

My Mum was recently referred to the Ambulatory Emergency unit and the Doctors and Nurses were just fabulous. We would just just like to thank them for all their care and help.

The staff were very pleasant and helpful. It took a while for them to decide on my staying in but once decided the staff were friendly and settled me in well

Will be bringing my partner Sal on Wednesday for an operation, look after her

I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff on the accute care unit for everything you did for my son and also a big thank you to all the staff on the avaning ward for all you did gor him aswell

Had day surgery on 10/4/17 the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I had a student nurse looking after me and nothing was too much trouble. They kept me informed about what was going on and made the day much less stressful. Thanks guys.

Hospital is great no issues. Parking however really hard to find a space and extortionate parking prices . Was in my appointment under ten mins but didn't get into appointment until hour after original time a Dr running late which is not the issue fact it cost me extra for parking through no fault of my own maybe should be exemption in place for delayed appointments?

Thankyou to the midwives that dealt with Emma Haywood in delivery room 6 from around 2am till our boy was born at 7:51 Monday morning. You were all fantastic even though he was a pain to keep tabs on. And got em through it very very well. And even the level 3 trainee that was helping was fantastic even helped em in the shower and got lil man dressed... Thankyou all again
