"My experience of pancreatic Whipples surgery at..."

About: Southampton General Hospital

I was admitted for major surgery after being diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer recently.

The surgery was carried out by my consultant and their team,

I was at all times treated with the utmost professionalism and care.

The whole team were very caring and thoughtful throughout my stay which was almost four weeks in total due to some complications.

I was treated in HDU , ward E8 and ward F11.

All were to the same excellent standard. The care compassion and cleanliness were all without fault.

Even the food was of a good standard considering the number of patients being catered for.

All together my stay was made to be as good as possible given the circumstances.
