What our patients say

  • My son was in for day surgery yesterday. We arrived at 07:30 and left around 19:30. The team were fantastic. From the moment we arrived until we left. Every step of the day was explained to him. No delays. Professional and friendly staff. His room was clean and the food was nice. We left well informed of what to expect and he has woken up feeling good today.

  • I’ve recently had a brilliant new treatment for fibroids called Sonata. It reduced my fibroid in just a few months, with an immediate reduction in symptoms. It was a non invasive procedure with a very quick recovery. I can’t express how grateful I am to have had this treatment available. It’s wonderful that the hospital offers it - such a step forward in female medicine. Thank you and please keep supporting this game changing procedure!

  • Absolutely brilliant care,,, I was very nervous before my hip replacement, but from start to finish was put at ease and made to feel safe,, everyone involved in my care was marvellous. I can’t thank the anaesthetist, surgeon and the ward nurses enough, the nurses were attentive, kind and extremely helpful, the food lady was a gem, making sure I didn’t run out of hobnob biscuits, all in all a very professional team and I Thank them from the bottom of my heart. Terry Webster

  • Had a day operation as an NHS patient yesterday, all of the staff in every department were absolutely lovely, the nurses, the anaesthetist, the surgeon, catering, they all went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, really can't reccomend them enough. They even did a follow up call today to see how I was.

  • Had a great experience here! Doctor was excellent and helped no end.
