"Operation on 21st August 2014"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

I arrived on POCU at 11am for my operation and was met by a friendly and welcoming team. POCU had recently been moved and looks clean and fresh. I was looked after from the moment I arrived to when I was walked around to Theatres. Once I arrived in Theatres I was met by a lovely member of staff who reassured me and made me feel as comfortable as possible. I woke to an amazing team in Recovery who looked after me no job to big or small! They really made the road to recovery perfect. After a short while I was moved to SDCC where I again was welcomed by a brilliant team who made sure I was comfortable and pain free. I managed to eat and drink and was feeling great so with the Dr's permission I was discharged home. I believe due to the amazing care I recieved it made the road to recovery that bit quicker! I am now resting at home and would not hesitate to reccomded Medway to anyone. Chocolates and sweets on there way to POCU, Theatres and SDCC! Thanks
