The care I received as an in patient for a laparoscopic unilateral salpingo oophorectomy on Ward 40 was absolutely outstanding.
The only experience I have had of NHS hospitals over the last few years has been our local hospital, which I can only describe as dire. I really thought that moral and standards were that low within the NHS that all hospitals were the same. I could not have been more wrong!
Every single person I came into contact with from the Nursing staff, anaesthetist, consultant, doctors to the cleaning staff were extremely polite, friendly and treated me with the utmost respect.
Having never had a general anaesthetic before, I was extremely nervous. Everyone involved went out of their way to ensure I was informed and comfortable. The consultant was skilled and I sit here three days on, at home, in hardly any discomfort with minimal scars! I am very impressed.
Thank you to everyone involved, but particularly the nursing staff. You are all very special and have restored my faith in the NHS.
