"First time surgery!"

About: Westmorland General Hospital

I want to say a massive thank you to all staff that looked after me on day surgery/theatre. You were amazing and made me feel at total ease. It was a very long day especially with the sun shinning outside, From the Sister and the team on day surgery, to the doctor and the theatre nurses. Considering I was a nervous wreck Never have I felt more safe and involved in my care and treatment. From just asking if I was okay, to holding my hand in the theatre room and for all the after care advice and explanations to what you were doing You guys were truly amazing and deserve every bit of credit for your outstanding work! So thank you :)
