"Dermatology Minor Ops"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Today at 10.30 I attended the Dermatology department at SMH for a minor operation. This was following two previous appointments in this department and a further one at Amersham hospital Dermatology for an initial operation.

My appointment today was on time, all staff were very kind and efficient and the procedure was explained very clearly to me prior to asking me to sign my consent. Everything continued to be explained as the procedure was carried out and it was maybe in a perverse way an enjoyable experience. Many thanks to all staff concerned.
