"The Sanderson Suite"

About: St Helens Hospital

I attended the Sanderson Suite for a Laprascopic Cholycystectomy and Gastroscopy.

I was really nervous about having surgery but the staff were brilliant.

My consultant was so lovely and understanding as they walked me to theatre as were all the other theatre staff.

My aneasthetist, looked after me really well and explained everything to me, one of the theatre staff let me hold onto their hand as I had my cannula fitted which was very reassuring.

I would be grateful if you could pass on my heartfelt thanks to all mentioned and anybody I've missed, for making such a nerve wracking experience bearable by way of their outstanding professional and caring attitude to all of us on the ward that day.

As soon as I am fit enough to drive I will be passing in a thank you card and some nice cakes as a small way of saying thank you.

Thank you so much for looking after me and for representing the NHS in such a positive way.
