"The care and treatment I got were wonderful"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

My experience of being in Rotherham Hospital was mostly really good. The care and treatment I got were wonderful, Mr Garner and Diane were absolutely marvelous.

The staff on my ward B6 (? ) were very caring even though most of the time they were really busy, nothing was too much trouble for them.

From the moment I went in for my first scan and they found something and I was taken into hospital and seen to with such haste and professionalism, I can't believe anyone has a wrong word to say about Rotherham Hospital. It's all down to the fabulous staff and surgeons.

I would like to say a massive "thank you" to Mr Garner, Diane and all the staff.

My only criticism was the food, which was very poor. Usually just warm (sometimes cold) but I do realise that they do their best with so many meals to get out.
