  • Comment on: Tribute paid to Birmingham trust's well-respected chief nurse

    Very sad news of such an incredible nurse and type of nurse we need so badly today.

    My thoughts are very much with his family and friends.

  • Comment on: Essex trust declares first A&E 'critical incident in years'

    I attended Basildon hospital yesterday and were shocked by the endless queue of patients waiting for blood tests, I feared my own would be late.

    I was very pleasantly surprised at how quickly the staff managed the the queues and that blood tests re booked were performed on time, they did a fantastic job.
    My local hospital in another town runes 90 minutes late as routine, even when you have booked an appointment.
    It makes me wonder why one hospital can manage demand and another cannot.
    I have always had very excellent service from this hospital and would hope that if any merger forges ahead, Basildon will take the lead on management.
    It would be nice to see other hospitals in nearby towns come under special measures to achieve the same success!
    Thank you to all the staff at Basildon fro your hard work, no matter how great the load!

  • Comment on: Are healthcare professionals afraid to discuss spiritual needs with patients?

    shurleea harding's comment 21 June, 2014 7:05 pm

    Discussing a patients thoughts and feelings on this subject is one thing, to have a member of nursing staff impose their views on to the patient is quite something else.
    I have heard comments from patients being told by a nurse, if you believe in God eh would make you better ... and a patient with mental health problems being told, their mental illness was a punishment from god for being bad in a former life!
    With stories like this, perhaps it is best not to discuss spiritual needs!
