After been transferred from South Tyneside with a kidney rupture through a blocked stone, I was very nervous. I certainly didn't know what to expect or what treatment I needed. All i can say is that the urology department have a fantastic group of professionals especially one of the registrars. I could not fault the nurses, Auxiliary nurses who saved me from boredom and hunger. The cleaners (sorry if you have a more posh name) who never stopped. And dont forget the porters. Last but not least, anaesthetists, thank you for making me feel at ease even though I was terrified lol. I would certainly recommend this department. On a more negative note to a particular consultant and Doctor, the hospital is your place of work and a familiar place. To patients like myself, who has never been in hospital let alone had surgery, it is an alien environment. Talking over the patient does not help, talking at them does not help! A little empathy goes a long way.
