"steroid injections"

About: Solihull Hospital

Was admitted to the day procedures unit at 8.00 this morning to have steroid and saline injections in my achilles tendons. I was back home at 4.30 very pleased with everything. All the staff, nurses and anaesthetists were friendly, nice and really do put you at ease as an operation is quite stressful no matter how large or small. I would like to thank all that were involved and praise them for doing a marvellous job. I would not feel worried about having to be admitted to Solihull hospital again and wish you all the very best along with the future of our much appreciated NHS.
