I want to thank all the wonderful people that helped me before and after my surgery in Craigavon Hospital for an ectopic pregnancy.
The nurses on ward 4 South; Krystina, Paula, Isabella and Blaithin were amazing- they took great care of me and were always so kind when doing so. Particularly Blaithin chatted with me when I was feeling pretty low after surgery and made a huge effort to chase up paperwork so that I could be discharged, I really appreciated that.
I'm incredibly grateful to Dr Finnegan, who went out of her way to call me in for a scan after hours after seeing my blood test results. She took great care of me when I found myself in a lot of shock after learning I needed to go to Craigavon for surgery and I really appreciated the time she took to explain what was happening and help me feel safe in a very overwhelming situation. The after care I had from Dr Finnegan and the rest of Craigavon EPU staff was incredible; I felt they were really thorough and very accessible for any concerns I had. Any time I called they were fantastic at getting back to me and I was never made to feel like an annoyance, I really felt they were always there for me which helped so much in my recovery. Mostly I just appreciated their kindness and felt they really understood how difficult everything had been, it was nice to feel that was always acknowledged. I really can't thank the EPU enough or think more highly of the people working there, they really helped me through such a difficult time.
I really appreciate the NHS so much after my experience. I feel really lucky to have had access to such great life saving care when I needed it, and I'm so grateful to all the people working so hard to make that continue throughout the pandemic- thank you.
