"Great experience"

About: Southend Hospital

Admitted overnight to Shopland ward after a day stay op via elective admissions. Hadn't expected to stay overnight but every member of staff I encountered were fantastic. My care was exemplary and I felt genuinely looked after as a person on the ward, despite my pain.

Thank you to the ward staff and everyone involved in my operation in elective admissions, theatres and post op.
