Spitalfield Lane, Chichester, West Sussex, England, PO19 6SE
I found all the staff, especially the theatre staff, kind , reassuring and warm and my treatment good, however I was very very disappointed, deflated and a bit angry that upon being discharged by the doctor assisting my surgeon to be told that the removal of my fibroid could not go ahead as a peice of equipment they needed to use on me didn't work/broke down. I felt I had then had a general anaesthetic for nothing and although my discharge letter said I had had a Hysteroscopy I wasn't entirely sure if this was all Id had??? So I on my journey home I was left with questions, frustrations and concerns. I don't think I was able to absorb all the info given because of the anaesthic. Also is it routine to be seen by an Oncologist before your op?? I have contacted Miss Middletons secretary to say I was left feeling confused and I had questions and concerns, her secretary is either going to arrange for miss Middleton to call me or have a follow up appointment .
I was admitted to the Chichester Suite via A&E. It was my first experience of the NHS and hospital. First couple of days I was very unwell and the experienced staff could not have been kinder, more caring, knowledgeable and supportive for what was a scary situation. Between the many staff who visited my room (Doctors, Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Catering, Cleaning etc) I was kept well informed of what was happening every step of the way. Hospitals are a complex jigsaw puzzle of people who all work seamlessly to one end - a healthier patient and discharge. Special thanks to Berta, Natalie, Ian, Dominic, George, Alison, Andrea and everyone who is a part of the team
I believe that St Richard's gives a very high level of care with total respect for patients. I would always elect to return here for treatment.
