"Surgery and recovery womens ward (1) 6th to 9th..."

About: Heartlands Hospital

I was at this hospital for a subtotal hysterectomy + bilateral salpingoophrectomy (cervix conserved). Every person involved with my treatment from the porter who took me to theatre to the surgical team and ward staff on ward 1 were all caring, professional and dedicated. I can't fault anything about this hospital, the care was exceptional, and the facilities were well maintained and hygienic.
