"My treatment was second to none. ..."

About: West Suffolk Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My treatment was second to none. I can't praise the staff enough - from the brilliant surgeon to the cheerful and kindly nurses and the ever helpful volunteer. They all helped to make my operation as stress free as possible.

The Martin Corke Day Surgery Unit where I was treated was immaculately clean and my husband and I were looked after very well before and after my operation.

What could be improved

The appointments system was its only failing.

Anything else?

I chose this hospital despite having to travel 120 miles for each appointment as I got an appointment there months before five of my local hosptials could see me.

The travelling was inconvenient but I'm so glad I chose the W.S. hospital and I felt priviledged to have been a patient of such a well respected surgeon.
