"Hernia repair"

About: West Cornwall Hospital (Penzance)

I came to West Cornwall in January for a hernia repair. All the staff were friendly, caring and professional. The surgeon and anaesthetist came to see each patient to explain procedure and answer questions. I arrived at 8.00am, went down to theatre at 10.30 and was home by 2.00pm. I left hospital with a spare dressing and clear instructions of what I should and shouldn't do for the following 6 weeks. I would most definitely recommend West Cornwall to anyone.
