Amazing hospital, I came here for Gender Reassignment Surgery at the end of April 2018 and had to spend a week here. The staff were really friendly and lovely, The rooms were kept clean and the food was amazing. Each room had a TV mounted on the wall and En-Suite Showers. I was kinda nervous about this operation but the staff were so lovely.
On the 27th March 2018, I had limb lengthening surgery, my surgeon Adrian Day is an amazing surgeon he made me feel calm and walked me through the process and his over all personality makes u feel at ease. Parkside is a lovely hospital and I cannot fault the nurses or doctors as they were so caring and helpful. If you need any kind of Knee,hip surgery, I would advise Adrian Day. I cannot thank him enough for how he will change my future. Thanks to all the staff at parkside. Keep up the good work! Sophie Courtney

I have mixed feelings about this place. Not having a long-term illness, I've only been here sporadically. I came here for pains in my legs and was given physiotherapy exercises to do at home before being discharged. Once, I was given an appointment, only to be told the appointment had been cancelled when I arrived for it. Early this year, my dad was a long-term inpatient here and some of the nurses and surgeons were great. Others attempted to bully and belittle him. One nurse refused to get him a bedpan when he was too weak to walk. But there also were a number of nurses with whom my dad built great rapport, so not all bad. If you are ever a patient here, tread very carefully.
Going to any open, public hospital is a lottery each time as your experience can vary wildly depending on a load of factors. The high throughput of patients puts both patients and staff under considerable pressure and stress, especially when everyone wants instant answers to all questions. I was in St George's for two weeks for major surgery last October. I have to say that from initial diagnosis to final discharge over a period of three months, the overall care from consultant to health care assistant on the ward was very good and I felt well looked after. Sure, there is room for further improvement (so not 5 stars) but to complain for having to wait a few hours for the result of a scan is being small-minded.
