"my hernia repair operation"

About: Ipswich Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I am an older male and I attended the hospital in early October for an inguinal hernia repair. I am writing to commend and acknowledge the hospital and the staff throughout the whole process - from admission, operation, recovery and ward care. I was put at ease and always treated with a friendly caring ease.

Particularly I'd like to name check Julian in admissions

Ali? in recovery and Kathy on Stowupland ward. Everyone else was also lovely but I don t remember their names ( I was drugged )

Anyway I'd just like to thank everyone - you all did an exemplary great job.

I am making a good, steady recovery.

Thanks again.
