"I was admitted for a Laparoscopy,..."

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

What I liked

I was admitted for a Laparoscopy, Hysteroscopy, and Novasure Ablation, and was treated with the utmost care. All the nurses were very kind, as were the Anaesthetists, who took time to reassure me about my procedure. I went home the same day.

What could be improved

The food is disgusting.

Anything else?

I was rushed back in, 2 days after my procedure, with a very high temperature and dehydration. When I rang the ward to say about my temperature, (which was in Farenheit) I was asked if I knew what it was in Celcius? I said jokingly to the nurse did she want me to Google it! and she said Yes please!!!! So, I had to Google it and phone them back!!

Bad times.
