"The theatre staff were absolutely great, they did a sterling job"

About: Holme Valley Memorial Hospital / Day surgery

(as the patient),

I had a minor operation on my foot at the hospital, It all went very well from the first appointment to the last.

The theatre staff were absolutely great, they were friendly and reassuring putting me at ease. The operation was done under a local anesthetic, the staff were so good I was even able to have a bit of a laugh with them during the operation!

I would not hesitate to go to the hospital again for other procedures. I should add the after-care was excellent – they phoned me at home on the day after the operation to ask how I was and assure me that if I had any concerns I was to call them straight away. The staff did a sterling job.

Hi Main 381

They say laughter is the best form of therapy! It was lovely to read the day surgery staff were able to make you laugh. What was also great to read was the after care the team provided. I will share your lovely post with the team, thank you again for taking the time to tell your story.
