Anterior Resection Operation
I was admitted on 29th January 2013 for the above operation following earlier colonoscopy investigation as an outpatient.
I was referred to a consultant and his team The operation was successfully completed and I am already recovering very well.
I could not have wished for any better treatment. I found that every single person involved in my care was reassuring, professional, kind and caring. The kindness also extended to my family with the surgeon ensuring that my wife was reassured while I was hospitalised.
At timesI felt rather vulnerable and the nature of the operation means that it is inevitable that rather embarrassng situations arise, but I needn't have worried because all the nursing staff took everything in their stride without any fuss and always with kindness and compassion.
Although there is obviously tremendous pressure on the NHS to deal with an ever increasing
volume of patients, I found that at St. Peters this was not allowed to reduce the level of care to individual patients.
At various stages of my treatment I was cared for by people in all the following departments, and each and every person gets 5 gold stars from me, with my gratitude.
