"Absolutely fantastic 407 ward and team - what a credit to the Royal"

About: Royal Derby Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to ward 407 to have tests and a kidney biopsy as an extremely stressed person. Doctor Helen Jefferies, Doctor Jennifier Allen and another doctor I didn't catch the name of, were beyond fantastic with me throughout my stay.

Everyone on that ward are a real credit to the Derby Royal; sisters, nursing staff, HCAs, catering staff all calmed my fears and nothing was ever to much trouble for them. A big thank you to Emma an HCA who stayed with me during my procedure. A massive thank you to you all xxx
