"All the staff have really cared for me"

About: Dewsbury & District Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

In July I went to AnE feeling really ill with an abscess on my back. A lovely nurse from walk in centre saw me and it ended up with having an operation on my back that night.

The surgeon went out of his way to arrange the operation that night because he could see how scared I was. The anaesthetist came to see me and reassured me about my fears, all the staff on ward 14 and theatre were extremely kind to me.

It is day 28 today and I have been everyday for a dressing change to the walk in centre. The receptionists have been welcoming everyday and all the staff in the walk in centre have really cared for me.
