"You are all stars of the NHS"

About: Croydon University Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

Recently I was admitted on Purley 3 Ward for an operation. The nurses were warm and helpful and quickly found a bed for me in a very clean en suite.

Everyone was pleasant and caring, going the extra mile to ensure I was okay. Even the ladies who kept the place clean were efficient and kind hearted. I've heard terrible stories about the hospital but Purley 3 staff and the Radiology department both exceeded my expectations. Special Thanks to Heather (radiology), Sue ( pain consultant), nurses Anita, Bookie, Dero (male nurse who found my vein) and Kay who made my room comfortable. You are all stars of the NHS.
