"Double hernia operation at Tiverton hospital"

About: Tiverton and District Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

On arrival at the hospital I was received in a warm and friendly atmosphere which at once made me feel relaxed. The treatment was excellent, I was given a lot of infromation that was very necessary. As far as I know the operation went smoothly, the only criticism I have is that I was woken up too early from the anaesthetic, as it felt like I was on a lovely cruise on board a liner in the med. Once again thank you all at Tiverton hospital you were brilliant.
