Would like to thank this hospital for making me realise how I should have never made the trip to A&E for help and remind myself to never go back there ever again after the 'care' I received. I was first admitted three weeks prior to my second visit and sent home misdiagnosed!!!! I went back still in pain and was admitted for six days and eventually told there was nothing wrong with me and the pain I had (which turned out to be serious) was all in my head! I eventually had enough and discharged myself and went to an outstanding brilliant hospital who dealt with my health issue straight away, no problems. Turns out I was right and the pain wasn't in my head. I'm only sorry I did not discharge myself sooner!

All I can say is thank you KGH. The care I received before and after my operation was outstanding. Very helpful and kind doctors and staff. This hospital deserves more credit for the care and attention to needs it provides to patients!

I have been dealing with CUH for over a year now and have lost hope and trust in this place. Praying I find the money to go private.

Appointment at 9:40, didn't seen doctor until 1:45. There was only one doctor, disgraceful experience.

I was diagnosed with a disease but wasn't told what that was, what happens next, how it will affect my life etc... I really wasn't told anything about the disease and was left confused. I'm still confused four months after my diagnosis. I do feel that my doctor is very approachable however, and I do ask him lots of questions as I learn more about the disease. I find him very helpful and to the point. You can tell he also cares about his patients and really does listen to any concerns I might have.

I thought that the hours worked by the staff were excessive. Despite this, the staff were kind, courteous and efficient.

Went in after an adverse reaction experience in another hospital. The staff in the other hospital were wonderful, couldn't ask for better staff and care. However, when transferred here, I was left waiting in a great amount of pain sitting on a chair crying. Was told six times I would be given something to help with pain but didn't get anything. Was brought to X-ray, had door hit me on side of head on the way and then got dumped at X-ray door. X-ray staff were shocked. Then after X-ray the staff called them to take me back to A&E but no one came. X-ray said that it was shocking that no one was there for me. Then 40 minutes later someone came to take me back to A&E and then I was dumped on a chair again in very bad pain. At 1am saw a doctor who said I shouldn't be left on the chair in that amount of pain, went to get a nurse, then got a trolley for me. I was told I would get painkillers and a bed in ward plus other medication but got nothing until 5am. Was told there was a bed for me but I had to try get up in so much pain by my self. Got to the so called ward and there was a trolley at the side with a sink and a TV above my head, no privacy what so ever. Had awful time trying to get up onto trolley. Then when a nurse seen I was in some amount of pain I was given something finally. Still had pain but helped a little. Then had a camera test, blood pressure was low, was taken back down to ward where the trolley I was on was still in a corner of the room. Was then told to go home, take painkillers and come back again in two weeks for another camera test. Was told I have to wait for prescription. Then I was told to go buy painkillers, then told I should wait for prescription again, and told again not I was not getting one!. At this point, pain was bad again and I just walked out of hospital and said nothing. I was treated badly, I didn't get offered any food. I never like going to this hospital, it's always the same.

Only for one particular nurse, I think I would not have got through my miscarriage. She delivered my baby, treated us all with such respect, emotion and humanity. An angel, we love you for making this so much more tolerable. Wexford hospital has a true angel in you my friend xxx

Having any form of surgery can be nerve wrecking however my doctor definitely put my mind at ease. He provided outstanding care and I felt well informed throughout - from where I was on the list for surgeries, to what the surgery would entail and also a detailed account of how the surgery went. I felt well looked after and in good hands.This was only reinforced by how well the nurses treated me and ensured I was comfortable throughout my stay.

Hospital could do with a revamp. Some parts of it could be cleaner and the food could be better but it's a hospital and not a hotel after all. Medical care was world class and nursing staff were lovely. Thanks all x
