"breast surgery op on 24th Feb 2015"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I was admitted to North Durham Hospital on 24th February 2015 for Breast reduction Surgery. After my excellent care from the admission team and theatre team I was admitted to ward 15 to recover from my surgery. I was in Hospital for 4 days and received excellent care from all the staff, every was was so caring and kind and friendly. The consultant and their team came round every day to check on my recovery and wounds. After discharged I had to attend the Plastic surgery dressings clinic for 7 weeks as my wounds were not healing. I received excellent care from the nurse there and all the staff. I would recommend North Durham hospital for treatment, as I received nothing but the most professional care and the Staff are all a credit to the Hospital. I was treated with the most upmost respect and I am thrilled with the results of my surgery. All credit to the consultant and their team.
