"I could not have had better if I had gone privately. "

About: Adult community services / Stoma prescription service Rotherham Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

Bowel surgery and respiratory infection.

I was admitted for surgery on Aug 2012. Surgery was not straight forward. Following more surgery I was put on I. C. U for about 3 weeks the H. D. U for months, then 3 weeks on ward B4.

The nursing care throughout was second to none. I could not have had better if I had gone privately.

As you can imagine I was given up a time or two but thanks to wonderful nursing, I am here at nearly 82 years to tell the tale.

God bless nursing staff everywhere.
