"Excellent help, reassurance, advice and..."

About: Dilke Memorial Hospital

We called first and a nurse advised us to come in. My husband had had a minor op on his foot earlier in the day, on going to bed his dressings were covered in blood.

The nurses saw us arrive and came out with a wheelchair so I could go and park. He was treated immediately. The nurse checked everything, changed the dressings and told us to come back during their next shift so that they could check everything again. The nurse also gave extra advice on foot exercises and rest.

The nurse then brought my husband to the car in a wheelchair to make it easier again.

Throughout the nurse was friendly, reassuring and very helpful.

Thank you for making the experience relatively east for us.
