"Liver surgery and outpatients"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Colorectal surgery Queen Elizabeth Hospital / Colorectal surgery

(as the patient),

What was good: - After some negotiation I managed to see the consultant of choice.

What could be better: - Organisation and waiting times.

Having had major surgery recently at both Heartlands and QE, the QE would be 7/10 for aftercare with heartlands 9/10....not the result I anticipated.

The actual surgery would be 9/10 QE, with 11/10 for Heartlands due to the team approach taken at Heartlands and Surgical team responsibility for patient care evidenced.
