"Ward 40 and gynae theatre staff"

About: The Royal Victoria Infirmary

I would like to compliment the staff on ward 40 and gynae theatre for their very sensitive and caring approach during my recent day patient surgery. The student and juniour nurses were as good as the more experienced ones. I felt that all the staff respected my dignity and were eager to follow all of the appropriate pathways and protocols. They were efficient and knowledgable about all aspects of my care, but above all they were really friendly and reassuring. I was anxious about my op but was reassured at every point and by the time I left I was almost enjoying myself! I did wait for several months but still felt that it was worth it. The surgeon was very warm and light hearted but also very skilled. Thank you
