Response from Susan Heighway, Patient Relations / PALS Manager , Patient Relations / PALS, Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for taking the time to write your kind comments following your operation last year. It is always appreciated when someone takes the time to let us know of their experience.

I will make sure that these are passed to the Head of Nursing for Specialist Services who will share with the staff at Wrightington.

Kind regards
