“I was made to feel very comfortable and confident”

Lorraine Chard

Lorraine came in for gastric band surgery with Consultant Bariatric Surgeon Mr Simon Monkhouse.

"I had my band fitted on 21st May 2014 by Simon. I heard about Spire via an ad and attended the open evening in March which I found very informative. I booked an appointment that evening.

"After having my appointment with Gina, Sarah and Kay I felt very reassured and confident in their abilities.

"On the day of my surgery I was made to feel very comfortable and confident once more.

"The surgery went really well and Simon kept in contact to enquire on my wellbeing. His pre and post care has been second to none - he is truly passionate about bariatrics.

"The aftercare that I received from both Kay and Simon has been wonderful and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

"I have had a lot of contact with Kay and she is amazing. Her professionalism is incredible and she has so much compassion for her patients.

"I have no doubts or regrets about having my surgery and could whole heartedly recommend the bariatric team at Spire to anyone."
