"Day case surgery"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the QMC as a day case patient for a D&C a little over a month ago and was absolutely astonished at the care I received, particularly given all the horror stories one hears in the press.

Everyone (from the nurses and doctors to the porters) was absolutely lovely and treated me with huge kindness, consideration and efficiency. The facilities were both clean and comfortable and I was even given my own room both before and after the operation.

I've had treatment privately before and could not differentiate between the care I received then and that to which I refer above.

Whilst I've not always had great experiences in an NHS hospital, I thought I should acknowledge the fabulous care I received this time around - we're always quick to criticise the NHS, not so quick to commend it.
