"Recent stay as day patient "

About: Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

A week ago I had occasion to use the Arthur South Day Patient unit.

I had the previous week been to the unit for my pre op assessment, this was carried out by two very cheerful but very professional nurses. I have used the unit in the past and always been more that happy with the "service" I received.

I have in recent weeks seen the odd newspaper report berating the service supplied by your hospital I therefore decided to write to you with my experiences.

The whole of my experience was a very positive one from my surgeon Mr Sargent, the ward nurses who could not do enough for me, the theatre staff who went out there way to put me at ease explaining all that was going on, in fact EVERYONE at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital that day have mine and my wife's unreserved thanks for a job very very well done.
