My surgeon and the team gave me a huge sense of reassurance in their skills and experience in the run-up to the operation and I feel very lucky to have had been in such capable hands. The team of four anaesthetists were kind, caring and understanding as I went into the operating theatre, by that stage rather frightened at what lay ahead. When I was in recovery after my surgery, I could not have asked for a lovelier, finer example of nursing. On seeing that a colleague clearly had their hands full with the patient next to me, one nurse stepped in and took great care of me. Not only was the nurse clearly very clued-up and skilled as a nurse, but they also took the time to talk to me and made me feel safe and looked-after. I had my follow-up appointment at St Mary’ and the surgeon was very happy with the results; I'm healing well and am confident I have had the very best of care. Although I know it has some difficulties, I’ve always been very proud that we have the NHS in the UK and this experience has really reinforced that.
