Thank you for such good care.

Really disappointed with my patient experience during my time in A&E. I waited nine hours to be seen by a triage nurse and as everybody came and went and I wasn't seen, I decided to leave. Terrible service and I would not return.

My doctor was a joke. I was diagnosed with an extremely dangerous condition. He played it down as if it was something simple. He didn't explain the planned treatment, outcomes or what the the recovery process would be. I think I seen him three times during a four-day stay at the hospital, three of which were spent on a trolley in A&E.

The worst care I have ever encountered, resulted in a very dangerous delivery, and a very sick baby. Shocking treatment, I'm still traumatised to this day almost 4 years later.

The staff were extremely helpful. They explained everything clearly to me and were on hand if I needed anything. Catering staff brought a bit of life into the place. And the cleaning staff would chat to you as they did their work instead of there being an awkward silence. It was my first experience being cared for in a hospital. I was in there for two weeks and I hated being in there as its scary and lonely but that was just me, not the hospital's fault!!! The only complaint I had was not knowing if and when a doctor would be around. But thats a minor minor issue!! 100% would highly rate this hospital!

From the moment I entered he day ward for my procedure, to the moment I left, the standard of care was exceptional.

No private room available to me as kept for isolation patients so despite paying insurance, rooms were left empty just in case. Disgraceful service for sick children. Every child should have own room regardless of ability to pay privately.

From the catering to the cleaning crew to the doctors and nurses and all in X-ray. Thank you, you couldn't have done enough.

I had an induction at 42 weeks. Baby was 10.5 pounds, 21 inches long and I had an emergency section after 39 hours of contractions - he was way to big for me. I am less than 5ft and a size 4. His neck was damaged from labour, he had a transitional murmer and I bled out in surgery and was in recovery room for 4 hours. My partner was forgotten and left outside theatre doors during section. I was not told how to care for my section wound, was not told about blood loss etc... I had to remove bandaging myself but a friend of mine who went public for care had that done for her and was given dressing for at home! I contacted the hospital myself and via my GP to get closure but no responses. Am not happy 9 months later. I understand that they may be understaffed and under pressure but I feel that had they been more thorough, it could have been avoided. The midwives were very nice during labour and stuff, but not so much after. One midwife refused to give me a bottle/nipple shields and said I must feed my child and plonked him in my arms. I was bleeding a lot and he was really hungry. She did not realise I had a section.

Very busy and under-staffed. No organisation in A&E. I was left untreated for four hours before being seen to, even though my condition and its severity was known.
