I had hand surgery recently to correct a Dupuytren's Contracture.
From the moment I arrived at I was greeted by friendly, smiling faces and was put at my ease. I was back on the Day Surgery Ward just two hours after my surgery was scheduled where the nurses were helpful and caring in spite of being extremely busy. The ancillary helper brought me tea and toast and was friendly and helpful. I was discharged at later that day and felt that the whole experience had been very positive. Since that time I have returned several times for dressings to be changed and to see the consultant and the physiotherapist and each time I have found everyone to be very helpful and understanding. There have been times when I have had to wait for treatment but that is to be expected in such a busy department.
