On 10 December a colleague took me to the Bournemouth hospital Emergency Department as I was experiencing severe lower abdominal pains. I was treated with respect and every base was covered to find the cause of my pain, ultrasound, xray then finally CT Scan the following morning. The doctors, nurses and porters were all wonderful. Every step was explained to me. I went from emergency to ward 18 and I can only give high praise to the staff. On Friday evening I was transferred to ward 17, where I was looked after extremely well both before and after my op. I just wish I could remember everyone's names so that they could be recognised.
I was originally going to have my op on Friday evening, however there was an emergency and it was postponed to the following morning, the surgeon actually took the time to come up to inform me of this themselves.
I cannot praise the consultants, surgeons, anaethetists, doctors, nursing staff highly enough. They are busy (understatement) short staffed and yet do a fantastic job! I consider myself very blessed to have had such dedicated people looking after me.
Although I have selected Accident and Emergency as the department I visited please make sure the staff on wards 17 and 18 are recognised too.
A huge thank you!!
