Hernia Service Patient Satisfaction

All patients are forwarded a patient survey 4 weeks post-op questioning them on a range of subjects including scar satisfaction, effectiveness of local anaesthetic, clinic facilities, doctor and nurse manner, and overall satisfaction

  • Dr. White and his team made the procedure comfortable and it was carried out in a professional manner.  The doctors and attending nurses were friendly and cheery making the whole exercise relaxed.
  • This team in Cumbria is unbelievably efficient.  After seeing my GP I had an appointment at a clinic in my town the following week and a date for surgery about one month after that.  As I was able to take the local anaesthetic option, disruption to normal life was minimal.  I have had a lot of excellent care from the NHS over the years, but every step of this treatment pathway was exceptional and I would recommend the team to anyone.
  • Pleasant experience throughout.  Staff were excellent.  8:30am - 9.40am - wow.  Treated me like an old friend.  Why can't more NHS procedures be like this?  10 out of 10.  Thank you for improving my life.
  • The whole experience was conducted in a calm, reassuring manner.  The clinic itself felt almost like a private clinic, the rooms were modern and clean.  The procedure was carried out confidently and was very quick!  Nothing negative at all to add and 6-8 weeks later I'm back up and running.
  • As far as any medical operation is concerned I suppose one has to say that this was a 'pleasant experience'.  I was well treated throughout and the staff were excellent.  I have never had an operation before and I was nervous about the local anaesthetic aspect.  Dr. White explained the advantages of this and the nurses kept up a constant conversation with me throughout the procedure.  Aftercare was good and I was able to speak to Dr. White on a couple of occasions after the op when I needed some reassurance regarding some of the after effects.
  • I found the operation and recovery surprisingly straightforward.  Please convey my sincere thanks to Dr. Martin White and his team who treated me with great kindness and courtesy.
  • The total service was excellent resulting in complete satisfaction.
  • Totally satisfied but cannot understand why total procedure could not have been carried out at the new Cockermouth hospital.
