This is the second time that I have been in Branston Ward at Lincoln and I have the utmost respect for the staff there. The hardworking nurses and others are professional, caring and friendly.
I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis some years ago but am fortunate to have the very caring Dr Obaid as my consultant. For the past 4 years, I have had monthly outpatient treatment with the rheumatoid department, nurses, currently Diane and Tracey are totally attentive to all individual patient needs. On a different medical issue, last week I had a hysterectomy, surgery by Mr Mohanty and aftercare on Branston Ward - I can't praise enough the high quality of care, both pre and post op. I was kept totally informed at all times, but to me, it was the personal touches to help put me at ease (I was very nervous) which stand out - I was treated as an individual not the next on the waiting list so thank you to all. I would not hesitate to recommend Lincoln County hospital.
I was seen by a lovely nurse first who took my blood pressure and ask relevant questions. Then I was seen my a doctor who I cannot remember the name of but he was a short black chap. He was ace! I was given clear information on what was going on and was very satisfied with the care.
My parotidectomy operation was in September 2015. I stayed on the Clayton ward. I prepared myself for a 'not so nice stay' in hospital, influenced mostly by what I read in the media and a less than satisfactory stay in 2008 directly after the birth of my daughter. How wrong could I have been. Although the ward was very busy, I was always fully attended to with observations being on time and nurses appearing straight away when I pressed the call button. Food and drinks were plentiful and available according to schedule. My stay was made even more better as I had my own room, I really, really appreciated this and was told that this was just down to luck of the draw. I was treated with respect and courtesy at all times and was not kept waiting or wondering what was happening. I far cry from my experience in 2008 on the maternity ward. I would like to thank all the staff on Clayton ward for making my stay (Sept 2015) as pleasant an experience as possible.
