All my encounters with every member of staff at Tetbury hospital have been wonderful. From telephone appointments with Mr whitaker and Sarah the lead surgical nurse, right through to the nurses just passing in the hall or student nurses taking information all saying hi and being polite.
I have never received such good care as I did here. In most hospitals, you'll have one or two good nurses and others will be polite but at Tetbury every person was equally lovely and made me feel at ease and looked after. Nothing has been any trouble for anyone of them, asking a question, or needing something explained more- they have all taken the time to do so and not made me feel rushed. Mr whitaker especially has been a lovely doctor. I've found in the past with people of that level they can be flippant and treat you like a number, Mr whitaker was the complete opposite, made me feel really safe and calm in his care. And my care nurse Dawn was so so lovely and just chatted with me, didn't make me feel rushed or that she had other people to worry bout, she truly was great.
I would also point out how great the anesthesiologist was, both Mark and the nurse with him really were very kind and soothing when being told what would happen and kept me at ease the whole time
I would recommend this hospital to anyone.
