"Cannot fault this hospital"

About: Barnsley Hospital

had to go in to A&E as I had severe abdominal pain. as I walked in the door I was greeted by the receptionist who saw I was in pain and offered to take me straight through to see a doc. I was then diagnosed with appendicitis unless proven otherwise, as I was presenting textbook symptoms. within 2 hours of arriving I was seen by a surgeon who agreed with the appendicitis, I was taken to surgery where the anaesthetist and colleagues kept me calm as it was my first op/ga. I was then taken to the surgical assessment ward after my op where I was greeted by a nurse who was very cheery and made you feel welcome. they let my parents stay with me for a while even though visiting had finished. the ward was very clean (mopped and swept and surfaces wiped everyday), the staff were cheery and listened to you.two days after I had surgery I was discharged and on my way home. cannot fault this hospital at all
