"Good nursing care on Gillies ward at the City hospital"

(as the patient),

Last month, I put a knife through my finger and cut the nerve. I subsequently got tetanus and so attended the City hospital for an operation. The Gillies ward nurses were great and everyone treated me like a real person - talking to me and not over my head. The doctors were great and explained what was happening. It all went very well and I was discharged from the hospital the next day.

I was treated with the highest respect. The ward was very clean and the toilets were spotless. Gillies ward was very relaxing, as there were no TVs or radios. I can't praise the doctors and staff enough. Hopefully, the feeling in my finger will come back within the next 6 months.

A week later, I went to Cotgrave surgery to have a new dressing put on my finger and the nurse was brilliant.

Being on Gillies ward has restored my faith in nurses and hospitals.
