What I liked

I spent six days on ward D4 following breast surgery. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all of the team involved in my care. I will always apprecitate the remarkable job done by the consultants and theatre team who carried out my operation. Following surgery I spent a night on critical care, prior to my transter back to D4. At all times I was fully confident in the care given to me. Without exception staff were professional, empathetic and clearly commited to their role. I was most impressed by their dedication and level of expertise. Standards of hygeine were adhered to and at no time was anything considered too much trouble.Most importantly, I was treated as an individual and my wishes as to my care were listened to. I very much wish all of the team to be commended for the fantastic work that they do. I am now well on my way to recovery and attribute my rapid return to health to the excellent care that I received.

What could be improved


Anything else?

I fully believe that I could not have received any better treatment or care than that shown to me at Selly Oak. Thank-you.
