The highly perennial, sensory planting designed by Joe Swift, has created fabulous swathes of colour for all year round, whilst evergreens will give winter structure. The planting is bird and butterfly friendly.

The whole thing is a joke. Went to the emergency department with an allergy, at 11pm and it's 8 am and we've got an allergy tablet that we've informed them that 2 allergy in the a few hours interval didn't work. So now at 8am after 3h waiting for blood tests results we were told that we'll get results when we'll get them. Like whoever comes to the ED might as well bring a uniform and find something to do as there will be plenty of time. So an update. We've been seen by the doctor. Finally, at 9.30am and he gave us some tips in what measures to take in the event of the same thing to occur again. So I've changed my review from 1 star to 3. Doctor and reception staff, staff overall was nice. Except that attitude nurse (I hope she'll end up waiting anywhere for 10h without any updates for the entire time, preferably night too, curious if she wouldn't be curious if what's happening). But 10h in the ED waiting with 0 updates even if you ask...

Firstly paediatric A&E play area was covered in blood as were some of the seats & I was shocked to see it is only cleaned once a day. Was sent home after 3-4hr wait, so had to go back to my GP who then gave a prescription for my daughter which is now working and she’s able to sleep through the night without gasping for breath for the first time in over 3 weeks! A&E is clearly understaffed but I guess that is to be expected these days! It would be helpful if there was an out of hours GP practice instead of having to attend A&E.

I was bought in by ambulance with a head injury. I was disgusted when I was put in the waiting room. It was 3 hours before I saw the triage nurse, and an extra 2 hours before being seen by a Doctor who kindly put me one of the assessment rooms so I could rest my head because I felt like My head was in a Spin Dryer. He took some blood, then went to arrange a CT Scan. He came back and said he also requested an ECG. The nurse who did my ECG, kept asking me to wear a mask even though I told her that I was MEDICALLY EXEMPT! This day was like a day from hell. The A&E staff are extremely rude except for the Doctor who saw me and sorted things out for me.

Eye clinic app…. Poor communication. Poor understanding on their half as to why I was there. What’s the point being told you have an appointment when they don’t stick to them?! The hospital is poor all round. They told me my eldest didn’t have glandular fever, was there overnight, bloods and drips given. My Dr called me checking to see if my eldest was ok as she has glandular fever…. I want told that but my Dr had all the letters saying she did yet I received nothing! A&E, what a joke, was sent in with my eldest via ambulance and she was an urgent enough case… she was!

Very bad experience, doctors in colourful uniforms flaying by without any significant destinations. We are here since 10:30 and now it’s almost 9:00. Literally every one that was here is still sitting in the same chairs. All we had is (who wants some pain relief??) My husband had a heart attack but they can’t see to him as they don’t have any cardiac doctor and they are trying with high Wycombe but still no answer. Look after your selves Aylesbury people, you have no medical care whatsoever
