Miss Patel is a dedicated lady who gave me 100% care. She explained all the procedures to me and made me feel at ease. She visited me on her day off and also on a bank holiday. I could not have been under a more profession person . Unfortunately after I was discharged from hospital I had to be re admitted, but this was through no fault of the nursing staff or Miss Patel. The staff on PPU and ward 5 were excellent and hard working.
I was admitted to Furness General hospital on 7th Oct 2016 with a gall bladder problem Miss Patel operated on me the following day The operation although a bit more complicated than keyhole surgery was carried out successfully and the post op care I was given by Miss Patel and her team was excellent In addition all staff on Ward 5 and PPU gave me 1st class treatment during my stay
Very worried was put at ease by Miss Patel. Examination was thorough and tests still to come. very satisfied.
I have been very impressed by Miss Patel and her team at Barrow in Furness Hospital. I could hear how she dealt with my colonoscopy and had no hesitation in accepting her suggestion of having a major operation. Nursing care has been excellent and the extensive locally prepared documentation has kept me well informed of what to expect. Suzanne Thompson, the colorectal nurse specialist, has been very helpful.
Miss Patel has been my consultant for over 8yrs. On the day we first met, she arranged an immediate test and quickly diagnosed colorectal cancer. She has looked after me ever since including travelling to Basingstoke to assist with my surgery. She is a true professional and very thorough. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
