"Bowel Surgery"

About: Basildon University Hospital

Anything else?

I have just been discharged from the hospital after a stay of one week and I am really impressed, having read the bad publicity the hospital has had recently I was somewhat nervous but my fears. were unfounded. I was admitted with severe abdominal pain that I had put up with for months and ended up in the surgical referals unit for evaluation, after further tests a diagnosis was made and I had bowel surgery to correct the problem and I am awaiting results of cancer checks. I ended up on Kingswood ward from where I was discharged. Right through from the surgical staff to the nursing staff down to the cleaning and catering staff everyone is courteous , polite and helpful, the standards of cleanliness seem to be second to none and the food isn't too bad either, if this is one of the worst hospitals in the country I hate to think what a proper bad one is like, you should all be proud of yourselves, your staff are awesome, thankyou from the bottom of my heart.
