"Surgery to decompress ulner nerve left elbow."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Ward B1. Check in 7am 3/1/14. I was impressed with cleanliness of the ward and the staff were very reassuring explaining how the day sould progress. During the morning I was visited by various members of staff including surgical team to est my ID and why I was there etc. The professionalism and co-ordination of all involved was very impressive and the staff appeared happy with their lot which had a positive/relaxing effect on me. The surgery was a success having the desired effect of improving the use in my L/hand, I am a professional musician and I was finding it increasingly difficult to play. So! Big pats on the back for all the team "High 5's" Thank you. JJ. PS: I have recently attended follow up app, all good back in 6mths.
