"Very well looked after at Watford general"

About: Watford General Hospital

Anything else?

I was admitted to Watford general with a suspected appendicitous. I was seen very quickly after arriving at the hospital and given pain relief. I was kept in overnight and sent for both an ultra sound and CT the following day which confirmed it was an appendicitous. By 3pm the same day I was sent for my operation. The care that I received throughout the 3 days I was in hospital was brilliant. All of the nurses were extremely nice and friendly and I can't thank them enough.
