I was admitted for spinal surgery and have to say that I was given a very high standard of care. There was one member of night staff who didn't seem to know how to help me get in and out of bed in an appropriate manner following surgery. But the rest of the staff treated me with respect, listened to my concerns and were very supportive. Nobody wants to go into hospital; it's a frightening prospect, particularly when you know that surgery is the only option.
My Consultant was professional but with a good bedside manner and no God Complex, which is another important factor. A big thank you must also go to the Anaesthetist and his team for keeping me safe. The ward staff are always busy and beds are scarce but you are never made to feel like a burden or left without care. This is a good team and I am very grateful to them for the standard of care I received.
