"I had emergency surgery. No complaints."

About: Croydon University Hospital

I have noticed that a large number of the complaints here about this hospital are in reference to the Obs/Gyn dept.

I am sure since the dept seemingly with many complaints had been identified that they can take steps to Improve things in that dept.

This hospital saved my life as 2 other health care providers had just said I had wind and hurried me out their doors

This hospital saw fairly quickly.

That my appendix was about to burst and rushed me for emergency surgery straight away. While cleanliness was not the best ...clearly the staff here saved my life. Many thanks.

Response from Hilary Frayne, Head of Nursing for Patient Experience, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust

Thank you for taking the time to let us know of your experience. I cannot be sure from the information you have provided which ward or specific teams were involved in your care but I am very pleased that we were able to look after you well and I will ensure that your kind words are passed on to the matron for surgery. It is always nice to receive a compliment
