"Post-operative wound complications"

About: The New Selby War Memorial Hospital

Had an allergic reaction to skin glue used during major surgery at another hospital. Turned into an infection a couple of days after discharge. All happened on the weekend, so was initially seen by out-of-hours GP at Minor Injuries Unit. Needed wound care for several days and painstaking removal of surgical glue. Nurses were brilliant, all highly professional, but very warm and caring, really looked after me fantastically, going above and beyond to spare me further pain. Cannot recommend highly enough.
