I FEEL I must write to inform you of the wonderful treatment I have received in the Royal Gwent Hospital. During the last three years, I have had cancers removed from my face in dermatology, kidney stones zapped in urology, my gall bladder removed on New Year’s Eve 2012 and in March this year I have had a hernia repair.

The doctors, surgeons, anaesthetists and of course the nursing staff have been excellent in the care and consideration of me and other patients on wards C7 east and D5 east. Nothing was too much trouble.

In my case I have been well informed during each stage of my procedures and treated with respect and dignity.

I cannot thank the staff enough. I was a wreck: now I’m fighting fit and pain-free.
