"Emergency appendix operation"

About: Barnsley Hospital

Anything else?

I went to my gp with very bad stomach pains Tuesday midday and by 9 that night I was going in for a operation on my appendix. They said they were very bad and potentially life threatening. Everyone from the gp, ambulance staff. Hospital staff to the cleaner were brilliant while I was up there. The hospital ward(29) was very clean and tidy which was a credit to the cleaner on the ward. The nurses were extremely helpful and always on hand if I needed them. I have nothing but good words to say about my experience which was my first ever in a hospital
