"spinal surgery"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

I had spinal surgery on 15th may 2015 from the consultant and his team.whilst being extremely nervous and worried their team along with the rest of the hospital where brilliant,they kept me informed,knowledgable and at ease especially once being prepared by the anethetists,the care and attention I received did not finish once the operation had been completed.this continued through to recover where the team was excellent and right up to the ward (N2) where the staff where amazing along with several visits from my surgical once in recovery and then on to the ward.the patient care provided was second to none and the whole experience was what helped me through this situation.i have never come across a team of staff that treated you with the same level of care from the specialists right through to ward staff.each individual treats and cares for you as if you are the only person they care about. Amazing care and a credit to there hospital and another reason why these people are so valuable to us
