About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital / Gynaecology Chesterfield Royal Hospital Gynaecology S44 5BL
I was due to be admitted for surgery to remove an ovarian cyst, ovary and fallopian tube and was expecting to be in hospital for three days. My first operation was cancelled on the day, just before I was due to go in because of the lack of beds. Admittedly I was disappointed, but the staff were sympathetic and kind and a new date was arranged quickly. On return to the hospital I was able to have keyhole surgery and go home on the day of the operation. The registrar and consultants explained the procedure clearly and the nursing staff were friendly, thoughtful and reassuring. The whole experience was a lot less harrowing than I imagined it would be, recovery good so far.
