"Where credit is due."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

This is my second visit for surgery in just five weeks. Within 24 hours I was diagnosed and treated. The demand for this service was extremely high on this day yet I was seen within a very short space of time. The staff in the gynaecology department outshine themselves. I could not be anymore grateful for each and every one of them. This department is clearly being stretched as far as it can with budget restrictions etc but this does not affect the highly professional and caring service that was provided. This is a very hard working department and I hope the bosses sitting high up see this and give their staff the thanks and gratitude they truly deserve. Thank you to each and everyone of you, doctors, nurses, anesthetist, cleaner, Porter the list goes on. You're a credit to the NHS.
