"Ward 207 T & O"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

My scheduled spinal procedure took place on 24th June 2014, on the above ward. I would like to say a very big 'Thank You' to all the staff on this ward. Senior ward nurses, auxiliary nurses, hostesses and cleaner are all to be commended for their kindness and pleasantness! As a very anxious patient (needle phobic), I was well looked-after, treated kindly and was well cared for pre and post operatively. It made a distressing day bearable. The operating theatres were extremely busy, but yet again, everyone I encountered was very caring and reassuring. Especially my anaesthetist. Many thanks.
