"Vascular surgery"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

From the moment of admittance I was looked after with exemplary care. Nothing was too much trouble and the nurses in the SSCU unit were wonderful. My surgeon was far too modest about their skill and within three days I am back at home and very pleased.

My only reservation is about the lack of information about aftercare.

I think a few instructions about the pack of dressings I was sent home with would have been helpful!

Were they for me or the health centre to administer?!

Everything else was first class.
