"Excellent experience of Day Surgery"

About: Crawley Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I have just had 6 gynaecological procedures completed at Crawley Hospital Day Surgery Unit and I can't fault the level of care and service I got at the hospital.

Having previously had a bad experience at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Cambridgeshire where one minor procedure went badly wrong and left me in a mess for weeks, I did attend my appointment at Crawley with a little bit of trepidation as I was having a lot more done this time. However the experience and service I had was faultless. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They made me and all of the other patients feel at ease.

I am writing this 24 hours after I had my procedures and I am already up and about with some pain which is to be expected but a completely different experience to the one I have had previously. I would definitely recommend this hospital for gynaecological surgery under the care of Mr Penny.
