"A great experience!"

About: Castle Hill Hospital

I visited the pre-assessment unit on 21st August 2014. From the time I entered the hospital, I was dealt with in a polite and extremely pleasant manner. I was treated with the utmost respect and dignity. I felt that I really mattered and staff in each dept I needed to visit were so kind and helpful. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at the lengths staff went to to reassure me and answer my questions. The person in the pre-assessment unit was extremely professional yet approachable and so kind and helpful. She made me laugh. It was a wonderful experience and not the traumatic one I was expecting at all. Thank you to all of you. Keep up the good work. You are amazing!!
