"Unexpected overnight stay with an emergency op"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

I just arrived home after spending Tuesday night on the Hopkins ward. As a 21 year old, terrified of hospitals, and never having stayed in hospital before I pleasantly surprised. All the staff in your ward put me completely at ease and was kept will informed the whole time. From previous experiences with the NHS recently I was anxious about having the surgery as planned in a couple of weeks and so hearing I was having it the following day was slightly panicing but I have no negatives from stay.

I'd like to personally thank the nurse who helped me yesterday, both Doctors that were there on Tuesday explained everything to me
