All staffs in Gloucester royal hospital 
They are all the best love you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘

Yesterday I was admitted for day surgery. Best hospital treatment I have ever had. The nurses where great and so where all the other staff. I was looked after extremely well and nothing was too much trouble. Great to have such a positive experience on the NHS and a big thank you to the team on the Day surgery unit on Saturday 25th March .

From what I have seen, everyone is working hard to keep the patients safe, I would like to see how they cope after 8pm nightly when my hospital, Cheltenham General does not accept emergencies. If I was in Gloucester Royal I would feel in safe hands...........But lets get Cheltenham and all the other A+ Es funded properly and all working 24/7. This is what we all deserve.

Dermy opd raised, so far, £140 for Red Nose Day!

I wrote a very favourable review of the treatment received by my husband recently which I still stand by but I believe the Outpatient Appointment system needs serious review....8 patients all booked in for a 9am appointment with the same does that work???....trying to increase car park revenue? ...2 hours 26 mins.....£5.10....surely the appointments could be staggered....9.00....9.15....9.30 etc?....or take a ticket system when you are sat outside?.....didn't help when a patient who had been told there were others in front of her still managed to jump the queue!

Absolutely amazing care given to my daughter today. The staff in women's centre wonderful. Special thanks to Karen Easton. Thank you so much all of you.
