Posted by The English Patient (as ),
I had an appointment with a Gynaecologist on Wednesday who was extremely caring and courteous. She gave me a few options for treatment with the pros and cons for each option and I chose to come back the next day to undergo minor surgery.
I arrived the following morning to ward 6 and was treated witth utmost respect and care. Everyone was lovely.
I had blood taken - time was taken to make sure she could find the vein, resulting in an almost painless procedure. I was lucky in that my surgery was fitted in first thing but am sure I would have been very comfortable waiting in the ensuite single room I was allocated if I had to wait any length of time (of which I was advised could happen).
I was taken down to theatre by two very friendly members of staff who explained what would happen next. When I went in for my anaesthesia the staff couldn't have been nicer, the anaesthetist took his time to prepare the vein and again was an almost painless procedure.
In recovery I was looked after really well by a very kind nurse who wrapped me in a warm blanket.
On ward again the staff couldn't have been more caring and professional.
It was a very positive experience for me
Thank you Crosshouse Hospital, Ward 6 and Dr Franklin.
