"I have received care second to none"

About: East Surrey Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I had a uterine artery embolisation in March and I would like to thank Dr Pankania and his surgical team for accomplishing an amazing task in a very professional way and doing everything in their power to make the whole experience much less traumatic for me.

The nurses, Caroline and Vicky, were by my side at all times, they wouldn't look better after their own child. The gentleman nurse (sorry, don't remember his name) spent 30 minutes manually pumping fluids into me in the recovery unit and Vicky went extra lengths to make me feel comfortable. She even visited me next day to check my recovery progress.

I have received care which is second to none and I would like to say a huge thank you to Dr Pankania and everyone in his team. I can't thank them enough.

Dear Leeloo

How lovely to read your description of your care as 'second to none'. I will make sure you kind words are passed on to Dr Pankania and his team - I know they will all be delighted to read your comments.
