"Fantastic staff"

About: St Richard's Hospital

Anything else?

Hi I just wanted to thank everyone at the Chichester Suite for their care and attention during my visit 23 -25 November for gastric bypass surgery. All the staff were brilliant helping me through the surgery and afterwards from my very nervous arrival to my speedy and hassle free departure. The Nurse who was on duty when I arrived was a real star nothing was too much trouble for her. I needed to press my bell a few times over the weekend and never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a response. Everything was done with a smile from the nurses to the cleaners and the other staff. I haven't had a stay in hospital for some time and was very worried but didn't need to be. The care and attention I received was brilliant from everyone, the theatre staff were very reassuring when I was being prepared for the operation even though my knees were knocking. While writing about my excellent stay I must also add my thanks and appreciation to the staff at the loxwood centre who have helped me through the post op processes and I know will take care of me post op. Thank you to everyone for looking after me and making my stay a pain free and easy time. The doctor is an amazing gentleman who put my mind at rest when he came to see me on the morning of my op and his skill has given me a chance at a normal life without the bulk I have carried around since childhood. Thank you a million times and I have no hesitation in recommending your hospital to anyone considering batiatric surgery.
