"Aortic valve replacement"

About: Glenfield Hospital

Anything else?

The treatment before and after surgery was excellent and this help in my recovery after such major heart surgery. Only criticism was that on certain night shifts the nursing care was below par. Apart from this my experience was a very memorable one, including the food. Thanks very much Ward 31 for looking after me.
