"As good as it gets"

About: Good Hope Hospital

I had treatment in the day case unit April last year & August this year. At a time when people are rightly or wrongly commenting on our NHS. I can only comment on 'MY' experience. The staff on both occasions were friendly, caring & professional.I am not supposed to name names , so I have & will contact the individuals themselves. The care that was shown me was outstanding. You can be called a carer but do you act as one? These people really did! The whole experience through all the different teams of people was excellent! My consultant surgeon was a person of great skill & care. The anesthetist was the same. Everyone I came in contact with showed the same friendliness & professionalism. I could not have been looked after better even in private care! To be able to have treatment from such skilled people with no direct cost to myself is truly amazing! I can only offer my sincere thanks to all concerned for all they did for me.
