Day started on a bit of a down note as Selsey ward had no beds and I spent a lot of hours waiting to get on the ward and I was worried my op might get cancelled although there was no mention of that happening but I'm not complaining - St Richards can only do what their resources and staff numbers allow and when everything was good to go , I was extremely well looked after by every staff member I came into contact with. The theatre staff were brilliant and did all they could to make this nervous man a little more relaxed- jovial in a professional manner and caring . A fantastic successful op was performed for which I am truly greatful to the surgeon and their superb team. Thank you so much. Ward staff were lovely - all very professional and friendly and were always on hand. I never once felt neglected . Physio team and Occupational Health team were fantastic and have given me clear guidance on that road to recovery. The tea person was a joy , bringing friendly banter to us men as well as great coffee! Food was great , loved it. Porter was great to chat to as they wheeled me to X-Ray . Felt like I'd known them for years! X ray friendly and professional. And finally my discharge went smoothly without any hitch. Selsey ward was run superbly and with genuine care for the patients . I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the staff for their kindness and support. To summerise - I went down for my op at 15.30 on Monday and recovered well enough to go home last night (18.00 ish) . One night on the ward for which it would not have been possible without these wonderful caring people - well done St Richards Hospital and a huge heartfelt thank you to you all! Fantastic!
