"Of course there is always room for improvement, but in my case there was nothing I would change.

Everyone I came in contact with from the nurse who played me some Sam Cooke music on her phone while she did my pre-op assessment was a pure delight, and my nurse, Claire, who made me feel so safe and comfortable, nothing was too much trouble for her. It's people like Claire who give nursing a good name, a truly dedicated young lady and her enthusiasm was evident to see that she loved her job and the people she cared for.

My Consultant Mr Macutkiewicz had such a warm and caring nature and his bubbly personality made me feel very confident - when he spoke to me I felt all the stress disappear, I was very happy that he was going to do my procedure, overall I had a very calm and warm feeling."
