"Open chest surgery"

About: Freeman Hospital

I was admitted into ward 25 in the cardiac department on the 22nd of October 2015 for open chest surgery on the 23rd. On arriving to the hospital I have to say I was treated with nothing but respect and had all questions answered. After my surgery I was kept in for 8 days and I was looked after by the ward nursing staff with nothing but care. The hospital staff at this hospital is some of the kindest and caring people I have met and they make the whole process very easy to get through. After being released I took Ill due to pneumonia on my lungs which can happen after this surgery I was at another hospital for treatment and have to say compared to the freeman it was not a nice place. Therefore I have to give freeman 10/10 for everything and would like to recommend this hospital to anyone who needs treatment.

Great staff great hospital and the nurses and doctors in my opinion are second to none.
