"Troublesome tonsils"

About: Wharfedale Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as the patient),

In march this year I had a tonsilectomy at the whafdale hospital in otley.

I arrived safely on the ward at 9am and was delightfully greeted with beaming smiles and friendly faces. The nurses were very helpful and bright. post-op I was very tired but was in no pain thanks to the morphine I was getting pumped with. Again the staff were amazing, asssiting me with pillows and sheet changes and also brought me some cornflakes which was very generous of them.

A special thanks to marylise the consultant and mr ashokumar the surgeon without them i'd still be in bed with tonsilitus.

It was wonderful to read that you had such a positive experience whilst in our care. I have passed your kind words onto the matron and head of nursing for our ear, nose and throat department and have asked that they share these with their staff members who will be exceptionally please that they delivered a level of care that met your expectations.

With kind regards
