What I liked
After severing a nerve in my left index finger on Tuesday I was rushed to Stafford A&E. They scheduled me to meet the Consultant Hand Surgeon first thing on Wednesday morning and was scheduled for surgery at Cannock Chase first thing Friday morning (unfortunately the Consultant was unavoidably delayed and the surgery had to be postponed to the following Friday).
The staff were as friendly as they were professional. I was there on my own and they kept me feeling at ease the whole time. They talked me through the whole procedure and gave me advice on recovery.
Having had a very bad surgery experience in my teens (in Sussex) I was really nervous, but I can honestly say that I felt I was given the best of care.
If you're ever unlucky enough to find yourself in my boat then feel assured that they'll take good care of you!
I was particularly impressed with how clean the ward was, and how regularly it was being cleaned both times I was there.
