"My care and treatment went way beyond my expectations"

About: Hull Royal Infirmary / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was on ward 4 in Hull Royal Infirmary for 4 days for removal of a spinal cyst and L4-L5 decompression in June this year and must say that the care and treatment given to me went way beyond my expectations.

My surgeon Mr Gerry O'Reilly performed my operation and it has transformed my life, the nursing staff showed me great kindness, I shall never forget these marvellous people.
