"My Operation at William Harvey Hospital"

About: William Harvey Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I had a gynae operation at the William Harvey Hospital on 13th June 2013 and I want to just tell everyone what wonderful, attentive and caring staff they have working there.

From the moment I was admitted, everybody was very efficient, looking after my every need, telling me informatively what was going to happen, asking if I had any concerns, making sure I was comfortable and even looking after my husband who fainted whilst the consultant was explaining my operation!

The NHS gets such bad press these days, so I just want to say a huge Thank You to all the lovely people who looked after me and that they do a great job.
