"My care was excellent"

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

My experience in the surgical assessment unit, theatres and ward 35 was excellent: my paper work in SAU was done meticulously, professionally and by friendly staff, while maintaining my dignity and recognising my being nervous. The care on ward 35 was near perfect with all my stats being done on time, all staff washing their hands and being highly professional, friendly and caring. Nothing was too much trouble for the nursing and medical staff.
