"Excellent Hospital experience"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

As a Health Professional myself for 20 years I have only stayed in hospital over night when I had my daughter, so I was understandably nervous prior to my recent hysterectomy. However from the moment I had investigations and received my diagnosis I have experienced great dignity, respect and a caring attitude by all involved. I stayed for 2 nights post-op to allow time for optimum pain control. I was informed of everything at every stage and was involved in my decision making. My consultant visited post-op and was pleased that all went to plan. I am now at home making a steady recovery, but I feel compelled to relay my very grateful thanks to all involved in my care from diagnosis to operation and beyond. The care was fantastic and all my needs were attended to, from pain relief, food, drink, to washing and dressing. I was looked after really well. This experience continues to make me incredibly proud to work for the NHS. Thank you A6 and the doctor's team.

Response from Queen Alexandra Hospital

Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us during your recovery period. It really is so rewarding for staff to hear such wonderful comments about the care that they have previously provided. Therefore, I will pass this feedback on to the appropriate people for their information. I am pleased to hear that not just the medical care, but also the nursing care and assistance was positive as this all contributes to a successful admission and am pleased to hear that everything went well. With very best wishes Leanne Complaints Officer
