In december 2013, i was lucky enough to have gastric by-pass surgery which was carried out in the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, I found the hospital to be first class, clean, welcoming, the staff were very caring, considerate and were only to happy to help you should you request it. My surgery was completely explained to me, the pros and cons were 'spelt out in laymans terms, never did i experience an 'us and them' scenario, the day of my surgery came the aneathetist and doctor came to see me also the consultants nurse chattted to me about the surgery, asking if i had any concerns etc, calming my nerves, wonderful department, the surgery was completely successful, I followed instructions to the letter from the consultants team to enhance my recovery and I am happy to say that I have lost over 5st I have alot more weight to lose, but the surgery has changed my life, i'm the lightest i've been in 15 years. I believe that the care attention and information I received from the staff at this hospital is second to none. Thank you. NHS is one of the most precious assets the United Kingdom has, long may it continue, and also funding for obesity I feel should be seen as important.
