"Emergency referral to Watford General Hospital"

About: Hemel Hempstead Hospital

I am 70 years young. My background is retired Army Staff Officer, retired Company General Manager. Last week I was referred by a doctor as an emergency patient to Watford General within 30 minutes of arrival. This is the second time I have been referred by this doctor who is extremely thorough, caring, and highly professional whose quick diagnosis and prompt action without doubt saved my right side kidney.

At Watford General I was admitted, and operated on to remove a large "Stone" by a Consultant Urology Surgeon. The whole process lasted less than 48 hours. I feel privileged to have been dealt with throughout by a highly flexible, multi skilled, professional and Caring Medical Team. All Doctors and Nursing staff were Excellent and I am extremely grateful.

(to say the least)
