"One happy chappy"

About: Good Hope Hospital

Had a procedure done in the day surgery, nursing staff on the day ward were professional and courteous, all the theatre staff were first class, very attentive and made me feel relaxed.

I Only had a local anaesthetic , the theatre nurse chatted with me the whole time and before I realised it the surgery was done. All in all I was very impressed top marks to everyone.
