I have had surgery at 4 other private hospitals. This was the least comfortable. Pre op I was in placed in a bay, not a room, with a hard uncomfortable chair, no window and no tv. After surgery was returned to the bay and left on a very uncomfortable trolley, not a bed. Won’t be returning for surgery in a hurry.
Very nice and professional staff. Top standard care.

Staff is very helpful, kind and professional. It was very easy to find my way and to get the instructions needed. The building is very old and historical which automatically means some renovation may be needed, but nevertheless good service.
I would like to say thank you so much for the care I have had...second to none. Yes the car park isn't the best but they are always helpful and try to find you a space, but it's the medical care that is important to me and it's been wonderful in the eye clinic...thank you Dr Bansal...he told me what was happening the whole way through the procedure...the nurses were patient, kind, attentive...I can't say enough about everyone involved...during the procedure I had someone hold my hand the whole way through...I can't tell you how reassuring this was...it helped me to relax....I can see again, drive again....I have my life back thanks you everyone...Elizabeth Norton

I've done several stints of rehab here and whilst the later hospital is more locked down, clinical treatment is good and if you are scared, violent and have to be restrained, this is done with the minimum force, no deliberate brutality. It's cheaper than The Priory, so if you've gone on a trip you can't get yourself down from, ring their number and ask to speak with a crisis team or ask your GP to refer you. It can be very scary due to the nature of patients being emotionally disturbed. My only gripe is there is understaffing and presumably the pay isn't great for the staff so they need longer hours, which doesn't help this most highly stressed situation. Another problem I've encountered is issues surrounding section paperwork. You are entitled to legal representation and advocacy if you are to be held in a rehab facility against your will, this is not always forthcoming. Worst still patients under section have been asked to sign other paperwork, including adoption forms, immigration, criminal confession and other life changing issues when they are legally not in the capability to sign them. Essex Social Services are the most regular breakers of that law and this needs to be exposed. That said, there's a good community spirit among the patients/inmates (if it's got locks it's by definition a prison) , and great chances to learn from each other as well as the excellent staff and community volunteers of all grades. You can learn a lot there, it would be a good place to learn about mental health and Anglia Ruskin University has used the facility in in-work training schemes for nurses and doctors.
