Had to take my son with a suspected broken wrist. Every one of the staff we had to engage with were very pleasant & helpful constantly reassuring my worried son that he would be fine & put him at ease. My only slight criticism would be the lack of chairs for adults in the children's waiting area so after completing a 10 hour shift at work, very unconfortable having to either stand or squatting on one of the minutest kiddies chairs for over 2 hours

The hospital is huge it has a 4 level multi storey car park very expensive £4 for 1 hour 20 mins but the staff were lovely although had to stop someone on his break to find where to go

The doctors and nurses are excellent since John has been diagnosed with cancer the information given to us has been outstanding, a lot to take in but incredible

The team in Oncology are great . So helpful . Helped my elderly grandad get to the right hospital after a mess up by our family . 
Also one of your volunteers Mr A Wilson . What an amazing man .

Long wait in a@e then backward and forwards to sit back down to wait before seeing ENT doctor.. eventually admitted..
Then up to the ward where I was looked after well
Staff was so nice.. got me on antibiotics and fluids straight away.. I have no complaints they have really looked after me... our hospital staff do their very best most of the time . They are always rushed off their feet. People moan about the NHS but we are so lucky we still have it...
Thanks to everyone who cared for me this time in hospital

I was referred to the Hospital by an Orthopaedic Consultant for a precautionary CT Scan. I arrived a few minutes early, but the process started exactly at the time scheduled. The service was friendly and efficient. The scan itself took place exactly when scheduled and after a 20 minute 'recovery' I was able to leave. All very stress free.
I have been to the Radiography Department in Cheltenham a few times before and have always been impressed by their calm and efficient service.

The NHS have been amazing with my daughter as she has broken her arm twice in the last 3 months.Amazing service... wonderful caring staff... thank you all for what you do. Xx

My daughter had an EEG yesterday and blood tests recently, fabulous staff so friendly and patient with her, she has bad veins and was terrified after bad experiences elsewhere but the peadiatrics were incredible.



A Coroner says there is a risk that future deaths will occur during the weekends at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, unless action is taken.

It follows the death of a man in a Gloucestershire hospital over a weekend

Helen Court As Cheltenham General A&E is shut after 8pm Mon-Fri and at weekends all emergencies to to Glos. Having been there at those time its like a cattle market! Queueing out to the door. Its diabolical and shameful!

Kelly Lessel It says gloucester royal on the post but the article is about cheltenham general. I have received shocking care at cheltenham which has caused a worsening in my condition. Gloucester royal is always super busy but have always done their best.
