I found doctor hughes very careing and approachable also I felt very confident in his care. it is a little scary when you need to have an operation but I felt I was in safe hands at all times.thank you for all your assistance. Annette bishop.
Very good and informative for surgery and effective and personable in clinic. One moan, or at least query......? I went in for day surgery for a laryngoscopy and biopsy. I was in for 7.30am and was last on the daylist, going to theatre at 4pm. The paperwork said afternoon patients would go in for 11.30. I live 10mins away, and could have been at least drinking during the morning. Why sit me in a bed unnecessarily with no information for most of the day?
My care was fantastic, my only comment/criticism would be that I was in the hospital very early for an operation that was only going to happen in the afternoon being as I was going to stay overnight. This meant I was not allowed to have a drink of water all day which was very uncomfortable.
Mr Hughes saw me very quickly after being referred. On meeting him for the first time I was impressed by the way he immediately put me at ease, obviously sensing I was very fearful. During the examination he told me what was happening and was gentle, thorough and professional throughout. Afterwards, I appreciated the calm manner in which he carefully and thoughtfully explained his diagnosis and the form that the required treatment would take. On the day of the operation he again explained fully what was going to happen and afterwards took time to reassure me and my husband that all had gone well. During the follow up appointment he said that they were going to keep a close eye on me in the coming months. The experience of being in his and his teams care has made me feel confident that I am in the best hands and in the best place for my condition. Mr Hughes is just how you would wish your consultant to be.
