"They made a traumatic event a pleasurable..."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

I was admitted to the day care unit on 6 September 2014 for a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. From the outset I was put at ease by the nurses. A further visit from the anaesthetist and the surgeon laid any further worries to rest. Following my surgery the aftercare throughout the rest of the day was excellent and reassuring. I was discharged later that day to recuperate at home. I cannot thank the sister and all the staff enough for the excellent care and respect they showed.
