"The skills of the surgeon changes my life!"

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

Anything else?

After many years of gynaecological problems resulting in severe cumulative anaemia requiring transfusions and medication. I first became a patient of my Consultant three years ago when he performed an ablation and was impressed with his skills then and although I had to return in order to receive a full hysterectomy I had no qualms about my Consultant performing the operation. He was kind, patient and thorough and he has radically changed my life for the better - he has given me my life back! The Anaethetist was exceptional too. The staff on the Gynae ward were fabulous - attentive, caring and friendly. I am appalled at the current media circus that RLI seems to find itself in I can only speak from my experience but it didn't fail me - it saved my and I thank God for the skills of all every day.
