"Nothing but consideration and kindness"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted into Grantham Hospital in July 2015 at 11: 30am for an inguinal Hernia repair. Ward 2 E. Bay 4.

From my assessment to being discharged I received nothing but consideration and kindness from everyone. The tea-lady who suggested the ginger biscuits to help with the nausea I felt earlier. The nurses, consultants, everyone.

For a couple of days I couldn’t face the food because of the lack of appetite and feeling sick. NOT because of the food! . When my appetite returned I enjoyed the food provided. It was great having it prepared and cooked for me as I live on my own, no washing up after!

I was treated with kindness, care and dignity from start to finish.

Thank you all

Dear Raccoon584,

Thank you for your lovely comments – we cant thank patients enough for this as it is what we come to work for – and being recognised for it just makes it all worthwhile as we work hard to ensure patients have a good experience.

This, as a ward sister, gives me the assurance that my staff are doing exceptionally well as a team.

Best regards,

Julie Record
