"My recent operation"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

I had an operation at this hospital. I can honestly say I couldn't have had better treatment if I had been the Queen. My consultant was superb. I saw him before & after the operation and he explained things in detail to me. He also sent his registrar to see me and again this was before & after my Operation. The anaesthetist took time to discuss things and all of the theatre staff were super. Back on the ward the nursing staff care assistants tea lady were all brilliant. So helpful & kind & patient
