"Inguinal Hernia Repair"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Attended Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on the 24.03.2014 for an Inguinal Hernia Repair. From start to finish all staff involved in my treatment and care were excellent. They were both professional and curteous at all times. They made me feel relaxed and at ease with the procedure I was about to have. I would recommend this hospital for other patients having day surgery, the whole team from the ward staff to the recovery staff were fantastic.

Response from Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Dear Mr Whitehouse It is wonderful to hear that you found your care and treatment for your inguinal hernia repair on the day surgery unit to be excellent, with professional and courteous staff who made you feel relaxed and put you at ease. The prospect of an operation can be an anxious time so hopefully your feedback, and your recommendation, will help to reassure others who may be coming into hospital for this procedure. Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to share this with us ... I will make sure it is passed on to the day surgery and theatre teams. Please accept my very best wishes for your continued recovery following your op. Adrian Osborne Communications Director The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust
