I had an operation for a Dupuytren's contracture yesterday.
I was dealt with very quickly and efficiently by all the staff/consultants from admission to when I left.
I was kept fully informed all the way through and checked many times to ensure that I was the right person having the correct operation and the hand marked appropriately to ensure that the correct hand/finger was operated upon.
I was given and explained a discharge letter being advised where to contact in the event of a problem after I left.
I have had absolutely no pain and apart from a slight sore throat I am perfectly OK - thanks to all.
Also many thanks to the pre-operation assessment team who were extremely efficient and friendly - even got a cup of tea as I arrived early as I hate being late.
I hope that the staff know how much a difference they make by their friendly approach that must be genuine as it couldn't be put on.
Well done to all.
