"Thank you to all the staff"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

(as the patient),

I was admitted as a day case at Lichfield DSU at John Radcliffe for sialdendoscopy.

I found the day ward very clean and all staff explained everything that was going on and what was happening.

The only drawback is that I was in at 7.30am and didn't go down to surgery till 2pm which is a very long wait but I suppose someone has to be at the back of the list.

The anaesthetist was great, putting my mind at ease and I was accompanied down to surgery by one of the nurses who also was chatty and put my mind at ease.

Once I came round, I was transferred back to the ward and looked after. My friend was able to stay on the ward and wait for me which was also a bonus.

My consultant came round and explained what had happened during surgery and what to expect.

Once I was ready to be discharged, I was given a full list of meds complete with instructions so felt comfortable to leave.

The NHS get so much stick for bad service and I do not understand why. I cannot fault the service I received and was very impressed with everything.

Thank you to all the staff who looked after me.
