"thyroid operation"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

Anything else?

I was admitted to Ward F6 on 10/10/13 for a partial removal of my thyroid gland. After the op I was sent to Ward F4 to recover and stayed overnight. I can honestly say from going in to be discharged I was given excellent care and attention from all areas of staff. At my follow up appointment on 19/10/13 at the ENT department I was given a camera investigation up the nose. I have to say this has always been something I have dreaded being done. I was very tearful indeed but the doctor and especially the nurse were terrific in calming me down and the procedure was a little uncomfortable but not painful and it was over in about 30 seconds. This has not been a very good year for me health wise and I have been to numerous departments of Bolton Hospital. Everyone has been very friendly, caring and professional in taking care of me from consultant level to admin staff. A big thank you to everyone.
