"Referred specialist surgery and treatment proved to be truly outstanding. "

About: Southport & Formby District General Hospital / Accident and emergency Whiston Hospital / Plastic surgery

(as the patient),

I suffered lacerations to the tips and nail beds of 2 fingers of my left hand whilst using a router to shape some Elm timber. The immediate emergency treatment received at Southport Hospital was exemplary. However it was decided to refer me to Whiston hospital for plastic surgery and specialist care. From my first moment of arrival at the hospital to eventual surgery that day, I can honestly say that the overall impression formed was one of considerable attention to reassuring the patient and providing a comfortable journey without anxiety nor worry. The surgery was carried out with considerable skill and care, making my visit a pleasurable one. I looked forward to the follow up visit a week later in order to again sample this unique high standard of patient care and nursing professionalism worthy of the highest praise.
