About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

Travelled up to Sunderland from lancashire for cryotherapy for prostate cancer as it is not available anywhere else. The staff were all very helpful and pleasant and the hospital clean and food good. I had every confidence in the Consultant. He came to see me before and after and was pleased that everything had gone well. It is too soon to say if it has been a success as yet and currently I still have a catheter in . Will report further later. The only down side was lights left on over night in ward hindered sleep and was disappointed with the appointment and admin side of things. Had to ring many times to find out what was happening and still even now never received any pre op info or info telling me what would be happening or what to bring. Every time I rand I was passed all around the hospital before getting to speak to anyone who could help.
