"shoulder decompression"

About: Princess Alexandra Hospital (Harlow)

Anything else?

would like to comment on the treatment i recieved at same day admissions for my shoulder decompression surgery on the 8th nov 2013. Although a nervous wait to see what time i would be operated on i actually went to theatre at 11.15. Very nervous as i went into the aneasthatists room the staff were lovely and really put me at ease.When i woke up in recovery the staff were great, i was then transferred back to the waiting area as no room in the ward,where the staff were excellent making me cups of tea and getting me comfortable.I stayed here until i was discharged at 5pm.After reading all the negative comments i thought i would give my experince of my care.
