"My name is Mr Fred Russell."

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

On the 20th of March I had a Pacemaker replacement in ward 23, the Nurse that prepared me for the op. was very pleasant and polite, she could not have been better. The guy who looked after me during the op was fantastic, putting my mind at ease all the time. The surgeon was also fantastic, done a super job, bless him. The Nurse that looked after me when I went back to the ward taking my blood pressure etc etc. was also absolutely wonderful, feeding me and bringing cups of tea and coffee, nothing was too much trouble for any of them, what a wonderful team they are !! I would thoroughly recommend Bournemouth Royal Hospital and ward 23 to anyone. Many Thanks for all your Kindness. Fred Russell.
