"Impressed and grateful to Woman's health unit "

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I would like to thank everyone involved with the enhanced recovery pathway for the outstanding care received for a recent hysterectomy.

From pre op to discharge, the process was organised and straightforward. My consultant Dr Veeravalli explained the procedure well and provided answers to any questions I had, April and another anaesthetist talked me through pain relief and ensured I was ok during procedure. Recovery nurses and nurses on the woman's health unit particularly Carol (night nurse) and Janet (day nurse) made me feel like nothing was too much trouble.

On the whole I'm really impressed and thankful to all staff involved in my care.
