In Dec 2013 I posted my review of this hospital based on 2 failed surgery dates for the removal of a choledocial cyst. My review was far from glowing. On Jan 7th my operation finally went ahead. I cannot praise the staff of this hospital enough. It was not a simple procedure and unfortunately there was an additional complication. However, from the moment I woke in the recovery ward I was looked after impeccably. I spent about 4 days on HDU before being transferred to ward 22, finally being discharged on 14th. The level of care I received was of the highest standard, from the lovely ladies who kept me fed and watered to the auxiliaries and nurses who work tirelessly to care for so many people with differing needs. I want to say a massive thank you to my consultant & his team of surgeons and to the anaesthetists for sorting everything out! I have been home a week and have already received my follow up outpatients appointment. If the past 14 days are anything to go by then I'lI be back on my feet in no time. When all said and done ~ excellent care from this hospital, and no one can ask for more than that.
