"That good it is like a five star hotel"

About: Barlborough NHS Treatment Centre

When I arrived at the hospital at six o'clock on September 24 2015 I was escorted to my ward and bed .when I had settled in my surgeon came to see me and have with chat about what would happen and all the procedure of what they were going to do and how.10.00 I went down to have my epidural and that was done before i knew it . When the anaesthetic had its effect I went into theatre you may not believe this but was quite pleasant the nurse kept asking me if I was ok which I was at 12.00 all done and into recovery room for 30 minutes then back to the ward with out all that horrendous pain I had been having.had some lunch and sure as eggs are eggs at 15.00 I went for a walk with a Zimmer demeanour 20 yards there and back with no pain what so ever.Friday lunch time I could go home .but had to wait till Saturday morning before wife could come and get me .never thought I would enjoy a holiday so much with such happy helpful people around to see to my every whim. Thank you so so much for your time and effort during my stay. I now am like a spring chicken l am 71 in June many kind Regards David m Hawes
