"Gynaecology nursing staff wonderful - Royal Hallamshire"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was not kept waiting by the staff at the gynaecology. The nursing staff were understanding, patient and caring. The surgeon was a human being, not a faceless magician.

I was helped to be prepared and relaxed before my operation. I would have liked to have known a little more about the procedure. Also a little more information on any 'signs' or symptoms I may encounter on leaving hospital would be helpful. More information on how an operation would affect my sex life and when things would get back to normal - but I never asked. I'm sure if I had, I would have been given more information.

The nursing staff were wonderful, especially the staff nurses, I would like to thank all of them on F1 and the surgeon Mr Farkas. Also the anaesthetist though I cannot remember his name. All the staff in recovery were fabulous.
