"Performance of hospital consultations and..."

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

Having returned to the UK from 10 years in Cyprus and aware of the negative publicity the NHS is receiving I can only say that the service I have received has been exemplary and cannot be faulted.

I am 71 years old and have a pacemaker but consider myself relatively fit.

Nevertheless over the past year I have undergone several procedures including a colonoscopy, ablation and replacement of the pacemaker.

I have had consultations and tests prior to these procedures and numerous other outpatient checkups in relation to my heart condition.

On each and every occasion I have visited the hospital I have been treated with the utmost courtesy, care and professionalism.

The appointments arranged have been timely and on time.

The atmosphere and care provided in the theatres has been astonishing.

I truly believe I could not have received better care in any private hospital in the country.

I can only say that I have been truly blessed.

I usually comment that if I continue to receive this level of service I will never die.

Cannot comment on same sex accommodation.
