"Ward 27 and Xray pain management teams, excel..."

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Once again today i had to visit Scunthorpe General Hospital for ongoing nerve treatment in my leg and back.. It's not the first time and won't be the last.. I'm always very nervous when i am to undergo treatment, but when i arrive i always wonder why ? as the staff of Ward 27 always make me welcome, keep me calm and bend over backwards to make my visit as easy and stress free as possible.. Then when i've been prepared by the 27 crew,, i arrive at Xray to have the treatment by the pain management team.. They too are the most wonderful people you could ever wish to meet,, professional, caring and always listen to questions i have etc and these people will be the reason i will get my life back together again.. Over the years i have heard on numerous occasions, Scunthorpe General receiving bad press by unappreciative people,, but i myself have never experienced this and just want to say,, the members of staff on Ward 27 and the Xray pain management team, are setting the highest of standards in personal care and are the reason Scunthorpe General Hospital is the best in the county.. Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you all again soon.. From Mr Stephen Pete Brown !
