"A very very anxious patient"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

I needed to attend an appointment for the day in the-gynaecology unit Acer ward.

I was a very anxious patient, but from start to finish every nurse or doctor I spoke to was very understanding of the way I felt.

They explained what was going to happen to me which helped to put me at my ease.

When it was time to go into theatre a nurse gave me the hug I needed, this nurse was very kind. The two anaesthetists were also very understanding very chatty which help me a lot. Before I knew it I was back on the recovery ward. When I came around was given a cup of coffe and some toast, then discharged a couple of hours later. Doctors and nurses are worth their weight in gold. Where would we be without our NHS. Thank you.
