About: Rotherham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had my hernia repaired at the Day Surgery Centre today (mon 29th sep).

After putting off the treatment for the last 2 years due to my fear of surgery i finally decided to give it a go.

Everyone from the receptionist to the surgeon made me feel at ease.

A special mention must go to the nurses who showed me the ropes and put me straight about a couple of things,if it had'nt been for these wonderful ladies i would have probably bottled the op and run off.

They informed me of the situation every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble for them.

All in all a big THANK YOU to all at the Day Surgery Centre.

What could be improved

I can't think of anything that could be improved.
