MA MBBChir PGCME FRCS Consultant Upper GI & Bariatric Surgeon Mr Monkhouse was the recipient of the "Your Care Matters: improving the patient experience" award at the SASH Annual Staff Awards of Excellence 2015. This award is presented to a person whose great work is repeatedly highlighted.
I was referred to Simon Monkhouse in 2017 and from our first meeting felt completely reassured by his professionalism, empathy and caring approach. The condition I had was extremely miserable with constant acid reflux, heartburn and nausea and the operation I needed to have was a Hernia Repair through keyhole surgery. Everything regarding the operation was clearly explained to me. Mr Monkhouse said “ I am sure I can improve the quality of your life. “ The four hour procedure was duly carried out on 19th October and I gather it was an extremely challenging operation. I am pleased to say all went well and I now enjoy a much happier life with all previous symptoms now gone. The difference it’s made is incredible. I can,t speak highly enough of the care and attention I received from Mr Monkhouse and his entire team at East Surrey. Thank you all.

Mr Monkhouse was very professional and reassuring, he did a consultation, gave me all the facts and made sure I knew the pros and cons of the surgery, he made sure I understood what the band was and what to expect afterwards. Once I had decided to go ahead he booked in the date introduced me to his team and then fitted my band, he was reassuring through out and has been approachable even 2 years after the surgery I would highly recommend Mr Monkhoouse
