Smells of wee u wait for ages for lift as out of 6 only 1 ever works patient press buzzer and some one says ill get a nurse then u don't see one for ages too many chiefs and not enough Indians and the bank staff used at night are rude and have no bedside manner

Friendly, professional and on time. All we needed - thank you GRH.

My partner was admitted in yesterday morning all the staff have been fantastic with the exception of one in A/E. He no bed side manner at all very rude and I would all question some of the cleaning not good at all needle on the floor not impressed and staff just waking over it and not picking it up and putting it in a sharps bin

The staff were helpful and the GP I saw at the Out of Hours clinic was amazing. We are so lucky to have such an amazing care provider.

Here we are again and still no appointment yet for my MRI x

 —  feeling annoyed at  Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

Excellent care from the doctor and advice given on my choices and also solved a problem that I've had for more years than I date to remember. Very grateful.

Only down side is the ripoff parking charges
We had to be there for 07:45 and did not get out until 16:30 which resulted in a £10.40 charge. This is nothing than a tax on the sick. I realise that there is limited parking and people have to be deterred from using the car park when not using the hospital. Maybe parking charges could be waived or reduced if proof of an appointment is shown.

A team of local hospital staff, led by our Chief Executive Deborah Lee, will face up to an epic army challenge on Exmoor this weekend to raise vital funds for local cancer patients. 
Staff from across Gloucestershire NHS Foundation Trust have volunteered to take on the challenge, with both clinical and non-clinical staff including therapists, strategists and administrators working as a team.

They have already raised over £2,000, which will make a direct impact on the experience of local cancer patients through Focus, the charitable fund for the Gloucestershire Oncology Centre, and are aiming to raise even more funds before the challenge is completed. Read more:
