"Heart Bypass Operation 5 January"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

My experience of the anesthetists, the surgeons, the physiotherapists, the pharmacists, the nurses and domestic staff of Wards 39, ICU and Ward 38 was excellent and I owe them my profound thanks. I was always given all the information that I needed with kindly professional patience in such a way that my anxieties were minimized prior to the procedure. The aftercare was superb and this was a major motivational force in helping me meet the discharge targets. My visiting family was always made welcome and given all appropriate information about my progress. My discharge was completed efficiently with a detailed briefing of what I needed to do when home. It was a friendly, even cheerful professional positive environment. Without exception all staff were approachable and pleasant when asked for anything. What a great team and how very fortunate I was to be in their care. A real Centre of Excellence. ( 'I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks' -WS 12th Night)
