"Impressed with the way I was treated at Ipswich Hospital."
Posted by Day Procedure (as ),
Recently had a day procedure at Ipswich hospital. I was extremely impressed with the way I was treated both pre and post operatively. Also with the gynea registrar that did my procedure was very professional. However there was a very noticeable staff shortage and I had heard it mentioned that they were at least half a dozen staff down that day and afternoon elective surgeries were having to be cancelled. I have recently had procedures done at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and I do feel that the level of professionalism by nurses and staff was a lot higher at the PA rather than Ipswich. However I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ipswich for day procedures that are necessary. Another thing to note was the distance between the day surgery unit and the car park can be quite a walk and quite confusing to get to at 630am in the morning.
