About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

What I liked

I am actually referring to the 'Surgical Criticare unit' in which 10 days after my operation as I had a dangerous lung infection post operatively.

I was often quite mentally confused by delusions which was I was aware of afterwards...but despite that I was aware of very caring and competent staff looking after me. They were brilliant and saved my life. I went back to thank them after I left hospital and took a card.

I was very lucky to receive such excellent care. I am hugely grateful.

What could be improved

Nothing.

Anything else?

Gold standard. Couldn't imagine anything Private being half so good.
