"Care after hysterectomy operation"

Anything else?

I was happy with the overall care received by all the staff at the hospital. However, my comment concerns the literature the hospital provides patients with. The information leaflet is informative but I think it should be updated to include pictures to illustrate what they are trying to convey.

Also it would have been good if the nurses gave patients tips on how to get on and off their beds. When I went home I was in a great deal of discomfort to the point that I had to google the information.

This simple information should be given to women post op or pre op as I experienced the most dreadful pain, simply because i didn't have good technique of getting in and out of bed.

Apart from that, my experience at the hospital was very good.

Response from Queen Mary's Hospital Sidcup

Thank you for your comment, which is very helpful. I will pass this on to our Patient Experience lead and she will make sure it is fed back to the staff.
