"No-one likes to be in hospital but I could not..."

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

What I liked

I was a patient under urology consultant and his team when I was admitted to ward 26u for major surgery for prostate cancer on 4 november 2011. My operation, treatment and after care on ward 26u was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and I can't thank all of them enough for their caring and kindness shown towards me at this time.
