"My stay at the Royal"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

was in ward c31 for bariatric op.

I can't thank everyone enough for my treatment during my stay.

Mr Mahawar and the theatre staff were excellent, everything was explained at every stage,

Nursing staff were professional, efficient, and caring at all times, and had a fine sense of humor,

Must also thank the Sunderland PTS, they stepped in at the last minute and provided transport home for me, when someone had lost my transport authority letter from Cumbria. In all an excellent experience, please thank these people on my behalf.
