About: Hull Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I stayed in a day ward in the Women and Childrens hospital at HRI. The doctors and nurses were all very helpful and polite. I was seen separately by a nurse, the aneathetist and the surgeon, prior to my operation. I found this very reassuring, as each asked me if I had any questions,even after explaning everything clearly. After I came round from aneasthetic, the nurses on the ward constantly checked on me, offering me food and drink, and ensuring I was confortable. The surgeon that did my procedure came to explain what had been carried out and checked that I was ok. overall my stay was very comfortable and staff were efficient and friendly.
