"Fantastic care for my son's minor operation"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital / General surgery

(as a relative),

My son was admitted for a minor operation to the Boothroyd Centre last week and I just want to say how happy I was with the care that we received whilst we were there.

The receptionist at check in was friendly and polite (sorry I didn't get your name, but it was the young blonde lady working on Tuesday!). The nursing staff ( Sandra, Vicki and I think Jane? ) were lovely to both myself, as a worried parent, and my son as the patient.

We then saw the surgeon, Mr Verma, who is very nice and explained what would be happening so well. The ODP (Janet) who came to collect us to go to theatre was friendly and reassuring, and the anaesthetist ( Khalid? ) was so lovely to my son, and made going to sleep so easy and not traumatic at all for my son.

This team are worth their weight in gold! Thank you to all concerned!
