"Not sure it could have went any better"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

Visited wards Esau and 8x (room 6) for appendicitus. Every single nurse, health care assistant or doctor that I met, I could not speak higher about. All where really polite, helpful & very easy to deal with, it literally was all about patient care. The only issue I had with the staff was that I thought the porters & cleaners where all very abrupt and had not been brought up on the same patient care philosophy. My operation itself was a procedure which I was well informed about, it took 2 days longer than expected to get me in to surgery but this was in relation to the A&E list I was placed on, obviously more life threatening injuries where more essential. Although I understood this, I am lead to believe that Whiston Hospital have a much better procedure to get patients in to surgery quicker.
