"Shoulder surgery. Ward 6"

About: Wrightington Hospital

The 3rd of December 2015 I under went shoulder surgery under the Professor and their team. I can not speak highly enough of the Wrightlington hospital and the treatment and care I received from all staff at the hospital from admission to my discharge. My thanks to the surgical team, the anaesthetist and team. Admission student nurse and staff nurse. The recovery team for such a pleasant experience. The entire team on ward 6. student nurse under the guidance of staff nurse. The nurses for cutting up my superbe chicken dinner. The night staff continued with the amazing treatment and care who never sat down all night, not one patient went without care. The day staff managed my discharge without leaving a hick up, my thanks and appreciation go to all on ward 6 and staff at the Wrightlington.
