"4 days on ward 5"

About: James Paget University Hospital

Well just back home after a four day visit on ward five to have my gall bladder removed. What can I say, Fantastic underates the experience I had. From the moment that I arrive on the ward for the planned procedure I found all of the staff that I met extremely helpful, courteous and kind. From minute one I was kept informed regarding the procedure I was about undergo, any potential side effects etc and what would be done during my operation and recovery including various milestone along the way. Now home I can say that all of the schedule was achieved, The staff on the ward were helpful and with a very friendly manner, making my time there as near to pleasant as any hospital can be, Full marks to the Paget, which of course means the members of staff who produce such excellent results.
