"A big thank you"

About: Castle Hill Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I attended Castle Hill Hospital to have a gall bladder removed. On first entering the hospital reception, I was feeling apprehensive but when I had seen my nurse, she put me at ease. I also suffer with high blood pressure. Even the anaesthetist and surgeon who were operating on me put my mind at rest. I was in good hands, I felt safer and my worries went away. The operation (keyhole) went very well. On coming round after the operation, I was so looked after. Nothing was any trouble for the nurses as they made me tea and toast and I felt better. On being discharged, I was given medication and told how to use it and asked if I had anything I wanted to discuss with the nurse. All the staff were great. A big thank you to them all.
