"Gynaecology/Post Op Surgical Day Unit Friarage..."

About: Friarage Hospital Site

From my pre-op assessment in the Surgical Admissions Unit one week before my operation to my admission on the day of operation, staff were friendly, helpful and reassuring. Many thanks to the nurse who booked me in on the day of operaton, to the Health Care Assistant who spoke to me before I went into theatre, to the Anaesthetist and Nurse in Anaesthetics, to the staff on the P.O.S.D.U, night staff. and finally to the Consultant Gynaecologist who operated on me. A big thank you to him. Hopefully on my way to a full recovery.

Response from Friarage Hospital Site

Good morning Thank you for your feedback, regarding the care and treatment you received during your admission to the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton. It is always pleasing to receive words of thanks and I shall certainly forward your comments to the staff involved, who I am sure will be equally pleased to read them. It may interest you to know the trust runs a ‘Thank You Award’ scheme where NHS colleagues, patients and relatives can nominate staff in recognition of their work. These are presented throughout the year for acts above the call of duty or where staff have shown exceptional kindness towards patients and their relatives. Please contact the chairman’s office on 01642 854151 or email deborah.jenkins@stees.nhs.uk, should you wish to pursue this. Many thanks again for your kind words. With best wishes for your recovery Yours sincerely Mrs Linda Oliver Patient Experience Co-ordinator
