"Every one of them were polite, friendly and respectful"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

I was in hospital for a bladder tumor resection. I was in Tandridge Ward for 3 days following the procedure.

The nursing staff in the theatre and recovery room were extremely friendly, polite and respectful. Also the nursing staff on the ward were absolutely brilliant. Although the first night I had to keep ringing the bell when the fluids kept running out/or filling up, when the nurses arrived they always got on with the job with a smile.

They never once made me feel I was being a nuisance for ringing the bell and after the first night, they were attentive continuously throughout my stay. Every one of them were polite, friendly and respectful during every part of their shift even if they had worked 12 hours and were tired. A very big thank you to all of them.
