I was seen by an excellent Dr on a Saturday afternoon, she arranged for an emergency operation which took place the following Sunday morning. I met with the Consultant and one of his team, both were professional and efficient, but at the same time were considerate and understanding of my feelings. The operation went well, the anaesthetist was very patient and skilled as were the rest of the team involved. The operation took approx 3 hours, I was awake and kept informed of what was happening and how progress was going. So far, follow up care has been equally impressive. I compliment this department wholeheartedly.
