"QVH, one of th best reasons to live in East Grinstead!"

About: Queen Victoria Hospital / Oral surgery

(as the patient),

I was referred to QVH by my local dentist for extraction of my upper left wisdom tooth. Because of past problems with tooth extraction the possibility of general anaesthetic had to be considered.

An appointment with a consultant was arranged speedily and he advised that a local anaesthetic should prove OK.

I received my out-patients appointment and was called in at the time specified. The staff were friendly and caring and the extraction was carried out very speedily and without discomfort. I was given comprehensive verbal and written guidance and returned home very happy yet again with the service provided by the wonderful staff at my excellent local hospital.

Dear WHI1212

Thank you for your feedback. It is important to us that we make all our patients as comfortable as possible when having a tooth extraction and it is always pleasing to hear when we achieve the standards we set ourselves.

I am glad to learn that your care and treatment ran so smoothly in the Maxillofacial Department. This is what we strive for patients to experience every time, so it is very motivating for the staff in this department to receive feedback like yours. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences.

Kind regards,

Nicolle Tadman, Patient Experience Manager
