"Hernia Op"

About: Leighton Hospital

After being sent by my doctor to Leighton Hospital in the late afternoon of friday 25/4/2014 I was seen on ward 10 by a registrar who diagnosed a Hernia in my stomach, I was very quickly sent for a CT scan and then had an op on saturday morning by the surgeon and her team. After my scan I was transfered to ward 12 where I cannot praise the staff enough. They were bright, breezy and very kind, especially one nurse who was so kind to the 6 patients in our bay. Everywhere was very clean. The porters on night duty who had to take me to and from the Xray dept were bright and cheerful and I was sent home Sunday afternoon. The only drawback is hospital food. I know in a large hospital it must be difficult but light attractive looking meals would be so much better when one is not well than unfortunately what seems to be on offer. But I am home now and my op is over so Thank You Leighton and keep up the good work.
