"Care of Nigel Saunders"

About: Warwick Hospital

Anything else?

My husband was admitted via ambulance into a & e on Sunday night 14 july with acute diverticulitis and he left the following Friday evening. We have nothing but praise in the way that he was treated from the moment the ambulance people walked into our hotel bedroom in Stratford from the time he left the hospital five nights later. The level of care tht he received was amazing..everyone was so professional and he was given every test possible and his pain control was monitored to the best of everyone's ability. The following day I caught up with him on the23 hour ward where he was in fact for four days and saw many new faces before moving upstairs to Hatton ward. The staff there were also amazing. So friendly and helpful. I found everyone had a smile on their faces from the surgeons to the lovely people in the cafe. I was thrilled with the visiting hours, 11 through to 8pm. In Worthing, visiting is from 3 pm to 8pm and there is ah hour somewhere in between when you have to leave the patient to have his supper. None of that Im Pleased to say in Warwick. He was given pills and follow up notes for his doctor at home on the day he left, and He was very happy with the treatment he received during his stay. And I was too. I got particularly fond of the no 16 bus. Thank you all for all your help and kindness..we are really grateful.
