"Recent heart by pass surgery"

About: The James Cook University Hospital

I had heart by pass surgery on the 11th of March 2015. The personal care and consideration by the Consultant's team pre and post surgery was excellent. The nursing teams in Intensive Care Unit and recovery wards 31 (during admission pre surgery ), and ward 32 (post surgery) were caring and made my stay most pleasant. Every team member of the wards deserve gold stars for their commitment, dedication to patient care and self esteem. Many thanks for everything.
