"my overnight stay at the friarage"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

Anything else?

Following my recent overnight stay at the hospital, I would like to write a few words to all the staff concerned. My visit on the 15 January was for a laparoscopic hernia repair, and for this I was of course to receive a general anaesthetic. I would like to place on record my very sincere thanks to the Consultant and his team, my anaesthetist, the nurse in the preparation (anaesthetic room) for theatre, and all the other medical and hospital staff involved with my care. I felt the care and attention given to me was just first class. Grateful to you all.
