Below are the latest general comments as posted by people who have completed the online survey.
Had to wait nearly five hours to see a doctor. Everyone appears to get the same appointment time resulting in a large group waiting in the dept. Lack of seats. Not enough doctors despite getting assurances that they would try and improve this.

Prof Murphy looked after me throughout a very difficult pregnancy. Neither I nor my daughter would be here without her quick decisive action. I spent a considerable period of time in the Coombe and always felt that she was patient and listened to me. She treats everyone with dignity and respect.

My Mum was an inpatient in March 2015 via the casualty and medical staff were quick to diagnose illness, unfortunately it was an ovarian tumor. The care and facilities were excellent both for my mum and us as a family. The room was nice and bright, overlooked the garden and there were facilities for us to stay overnight, plus the restaurant meant we could eat there and the menu was excellent. Post-discharge my mum passed away six days later but we had a fantastic experience with this hospital and positive memories.

Had a shoulder operation on the 16/9/15 and the quality of the care and attention was excellent. I was at all times made to feel relaxed and aware of what was involved in my stay in the hospital.

One healthcare professional I dealt with was the rudest person I have ever met. Disgraceful. I have never felt so degraded.

What is the point of a scheduled appointment which you then have to wait an hour for? It caters for paediatric opthalmology yet some admin person came out and told my children they would have to be quiet. It shouldn't advertise as being open to children, or the paediatric doctors should move to their own unit. Minimum information given to us by opthalmologist. Charged a different fee to the one given to us when we booked the appointment. For a private hospital it seems very shabbily run. Lot less comfortable, lot more stressful than the Hermitage in Lucan.

My doctor needed to work on his bedside manner.

I will give them for their professional and human approach 100/100 - from the moment I was admitted to when I left. Thank you.

My treatment in this hospital was horrendous. I was sneered at, treated like I was invisible, given out to when in labour, lied to, bullied. Physically me and my baby were fine, but I am still traumatised by the way I was treated. I want to have another baby and I am terrified and no longer trust medical professionals. I cannot even bring myself to make a formal complaint (I will soon) because the thought of engaging with this hospital again sends shivers down my spine. I am going to have to go to counselling in order to deal with this experience. I am disgusted that women are treated like this by the people who are supposed to care for them. Do not have your baby in this hospital.

Prof Gupta and his team and all the staff of Suite 4 took excellent care of my partner. The care given was first class. Cancer support information office was an important part of her recovery and lifted her spirits. The services offered there were very welcome and a little bit of calm in a stressful time. The only gripe would be the endless wait for one of the doctors to see patients. I don't know why it takes three hours, sometimes longer, after allotted appointment to be seen. No explanation, no apologies, just sit under the stairs and wait to be called.
