"Thank you to a wonderful team"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

I have just returned home having had an eye operation where I stayed overnight following a general anaesthetic. The whole team on the Eye Unit at all levels - both on the Ward and in the Theatres and Recovery - were so kind, caring and skilful that I didn't want to come home at all! I felt in very safe hands, well looked after and reassured at every stage. The standard of care is so high that I can assure anyone who has to have treatment at the Eye Unit at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital, that they need have no worries - you couldn't get better care anywhere. Also the food was really good!

Dear Mary Hurst Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of our Ophthalmology Department. It is very reassuring to hear that you felt safe and well cared for during your operation and recovery and also that you were kept comfortable and well fed on the ward before being discharged. Your acknowledgement of the high standard of care we aspire to is appreciated and I will be delighted to pass on your comments to the team who looked after you. I wish you a speedy recovery for your surgery and thank you again for your recommendation of our hospital. Regards Sue Mellor Head of Patient Engagement
