"Thanks to the wonderful people who cared for me"

About: Croydon University Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I went in in February 2015 for a hernia operation, I was quite nervous as I'd never had an anaesthetic before, never had an operation before, never really even been in hospital before. But I needn't have worried because everything went very well, I received excellent treatment & after care. I was released the same day, I must admit that it has & is taking a while to completely heal, but I know in time everything will be fine.

Also in March I was admitted to the same hospital for an angiogram, which resulted in an angioplasty & the fitting of a stent, once again I would like to praise everyone involved, doctors, specialists, nurses, aftercare & anyone else involved.

Everyone who works in Croydon University Hospital always show that they care, are patient, understanding, hard working & dedicated, there should be no doubt that they all deserve praise in a job which must at times prove to be very difficult & possibly on occasion quite upsetting! But of course equally also very rewarding, once again I know that my treatment will take time to settle down, but thanks again to the wonderful people who treated & cared for me! !
