"MK GeneraL - As good as private hospital"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

I would like to sincerely thank the MK hospital staff for the exemplary experience I enjoyed on Monday 17th March when I was subject to a right hip bursecotomy and tendons repair operation. I was scheduled for a 7.15 am check-in and the whole system ran like clockwork; the staff were informative, practical and kindly. My gratitude will, I trust, be passed to Mr Pearce and all his team; the anethisist and her colleague; and the porter, et al. Following the procedure I was cared for by exemplary staff on Ward 18 and am only sorry I don’t recall their names to mention their individual kindnesses and hard work. There was a very positive spirit within the nursing team and it inspired me with confidence to witness the good team work and spirit so evident among colleagues of Lele, a recent appointee to the team who obviously benefitted from such a healthy environment. I really wish I could list more of the staff by name, including the catering and cleaning staff. Sadly my memory is not that acute but I do wish them all well and hope (though not soon) to meet them again sometime in the future. Again please thank them all and tell them ‘Well done’.
