About: Uckfield Hospital

I was recently a Day patient at Uckfield Community Hospital and I wanted to say how great the staff were and how everyone was so supportive and friendly. Everyone was a total credit to their profession from pre-admission to the day of the operation and the hospital areas were very clean and tidy. I traveled from Brighton to have my operation here as I new the quality would be worth the trip and I wasn't disappointed. I hope that you will pass on my thanks to the ward, theatres plus Admissions and the Consultant as you all do a tremendous job, including the kitchen staff as even the sandwiches were great.
