"unexpected surgery to lumbar spine - neuro..."

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

The treatment and care that I received whilst at the hospital was excellent. My surgery was not planned and I was therefore quite anxious about what was going to happen. Everything was explained clearly to me and I was given ample opportunities to ask questions. All of the staff were friendly, approachable and extremely pleasant. Everyone seemed to genuinely care about the patients from the cleaners to nurses to the surgeon. I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone as I believe at the Hallamshire you are in the best possible hands. I want to thank everyone that helped me while I was there.
