I had a number of admissions last year (as a private patient) and I cannot fault the kindness I received from most staff and the quality of care I received each time when I came in via Emergency. The only thing I did not care for was having shared wards with other genders. Having gynaecological treatments/examinations in a ward full of men, behind nothing more than a flimsy paper curtain, is rather daunting and highly embarrassing especially when there is no privacy and everything about your medical condition can be readily heard by those around you (patients and visitors). I understand that as a private patient I am not entitled to a room on my own but it would be lovely if there were women or men only wards.
