"I felt that I was looked after ..."

About: Harrogate District Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I felt that I was looked after very well, both before and after surgery. With the kindness and care, the skill and experience of both the nursing staff and the surgeons, it’s no wonder that Harrogate Hospital is so highly esteemed.

What could be improved

Nothing that I could see

Anything else?

I attended the Day Surgery Unit to have my gall bladder removed. The surgery took place on 31st October and just over two weeks’ later I was back at work and able to do all that was required of me. A month after the operation, I have no pain or discomfort and am able to eat all that I want (unfortunately, starting to put back on the weight I was so pleased to have lost!).
