"Hysterectomy and prolapse repair"

About: Burnley General Hospital

Anything else?

Would like to thank all the staff on the gynae ward where I underwent a hysterectomy and prolapse repair on the 5th November. The whole experience was fantastic far better than I had expected. The surgeons, the ward staff, including the tea lady and cleaning staff were all exceptional. The food was also very good. The ward, toilets and bedding were all changed daily. All the staff were helpful, very caring and everywhere was clean and tidy. Would highly recommend.
