"I was admitted as an emergency,..."

About: Southampton General Hospital

What I liked

I was admitted as an emergency, requiring 2 operations, which were carried out within 12 hours of admission. I was treadted with care and respect at all times. AS I suffer from social phobia, the staff were very attentive and ensured I was not anxious, at all times.

I was admitted to ward F7, post op, and have to say that the treatment and attention I received from all the staff was first class. In particular one nurse was so kind and skillfull, installing comfidence in staff and the hospital in general, particularly if I was feeling worried about anything that was being done to me. They carefully explained everything and made all procedures quick and painless.

In this time of people always complaining, I felt it important to comment on how wonderful your hospital is.
