"Birmingham Women's Hospital: ward 7 rocks! "

About: Birmingham Women's Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I was a day patient on Ward 7 last week and boy was I scared.

The staff treated me with the utmost courtesy, all were very professional and nothing seemed too much for them. The ward (small room housing 2 beds) was immaculately clean and all very organised.

Sylvia was an absolute "angel", she seemed to appear in my hour of need and escorted me down to theatre. She was there for me when I returned to my room having gone through my procedure.

The theatre staff were absolutely wonderful, how they coped with such a wimp as I is amazing. I can only say that this was my first experience of being in hospital (which at 41 years of age isn't bad) and one that I shall never forget - and for all the right reasons.

Keep up the excellent work guys and gals on Ward 7, and I think it was theatre 5. God bless you all.
