"Could not have asked for more - operation on 16..."

About: Benenden Hospital

I was able to see three consultants who determined the cause of my considerable pain via a scan and a CT scan eliminating various things as we went.

I had contacted Benenden because of the very long waiting time at my local NHS hospital.

Finally discovered that a hernia repair and adhesions removal was what was needed.

I visited the hospital for my operation on 16th October and was met by the calm, efficient and friendly staff in admissions to await my turn for surgery.

I had my operation late afternoon and was then returned to my room after leaving the recovery suite.

I was very well monitored by the doctor and their team there - all of which were friendly kind and filled me with confidence.

I would certainly recommend Benenden to anyone.

My husband was able to stay at Peek Lodge which is 2 minutes walk away and found it very comfortable and the food and staff were very good which made it all the more easier for us to visit Benenden.
