About the garden

The new garden has secluded areas for patients to be on their own or with visitors, a rill and water feature. 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.

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.

My retina detached itself last week. I had to have emergency surgery on it to correct it, unfortunately the other eye has a thick cataract. I'm down to about 30% vision, which isn't pleasant. Unfortunately that meant I had to stay two nights in the hospital whilst my cataract laden eye sort of got used to being dominant. I admit, I was a bit of a grumpy sod whilst in there (I wasn't abusive or anything, I just wanted to be left alone). Apart from a couple of minor issues, the team there where fantastic. The food wasn't half bad either. Although I had to phone back looking for my follow up appointment which should have happened automatically, I'm eternally grateful for the quiet professionalism and patience they showed me.

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.

Arrived at Stoke Mandeville ER on a late friday afternoon and within 10 minutes of signing in was seen by the Triage Nurse. Within 15 minutes after that, I was seen by the ER Doctor and examined and given a perscription for my condition which was ongoing for 5 weeks. All the staff were polite and friendly and I was well looked after. If I could clone those staff members and put them in every ER in the country......what a wonderful country it would be❤❤
