"Excellent treatment in West Yorkshire"

About: Airedale General Hospital / General surgery West Yorkshire

(as the patient),

An infected sebaceous cyst was getting bigger and more sore despite a week's heavy duty anti-biotics but I was going on holiday the next day. So I felt I needed it to be looked at again. This is how the timings worked out approximately:

08. 00 called surgery

Before 09. 00 call back with appointment time

10. 35 appointment with a GP (Dr Holt) at Grange Park Surgery, Burley-in-Wharfedale who arranged for me to be seen at hospital

12. 15 Airedale Hospital Ward 14

13. 00 formal admission and over the next couple of hours visits from junior doctor (Haroon) and surgeon (Petros)

15. 45 cyst / abscess drained and packed

17. 00 discharged

All the staff were great and I could not have been treated with more kindness and care. So sorry I can't remember everyone's names. Maddie and all the other nurses and theatre team were brilliant. Everyone told me their name.
