"Every staff member genuinely cared and made me feel safe"

About: Wrightington Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Attended for foot surgery today under mr Karski and was treated like a star! From pre op, admissions, anaesthetics and recovery all equally brilliant. Every staff member genuinely cared and made me feel safe. They all appeared to be enjoying their work too.

Thanks so much to all the staff I met today, all a credit to the NHS. And a special thanks to Ian and all the staff on D ward X X

I do hope to never see you as a patient again tho X
