The whole team provided me with all the information I needed and various treatment options. I cannot thank Gursh enough for going above and beyond to ensure I was happy with each step and the final outcome. Sian and Sarah, also made the process very easy with booking my appointments around my busy schedule and also answering any questions I had ( I had a lot ). Overall, I cannot thank the whole team enough for making such a difference with how I feel and will recommend the whole experience to anyone. So pleased, thank you again.

I’ve felt at complete ease over the past 18 months having my teeth straightening treatment. I couldn’t be happier with the service Gursh, Steph, Sarah and the other girls have provided me with, and I am thrilled with the end result!

The doctors and reception staff that I deal with are amazing, very friendly and helpful, making you feel like you aren't just another number.

Sarum House Surgery

3 St Ethelbert St, Hereford HR1 2NS, UK – 01432 265422

Firstly I want to say that all the doctors (actually there is one with a terrible bedside manner) are lovely and work so hard. Here are the problems: i) It can take up to fifty phone calls to get through. Likewise prescription. Always engaged. They will probably say they don't have the funding but clearly such a system is broken. This needs fixing. I'm just on hold at the moment. Took 20 calls to get through and now on hold for five mins. I got through in ten and the receptionist was lovely and apologised to me for waiting so long. She was also very courteous and professional. So a mixed bag. ii) I read one of the reviews that the reception team are rude. Not always as evidenced above but earlier today I spoke to a receptionist who was very rude. I had a very simple request and that was to get a message Dr Watts. Just a message. She wouldn't do it. Or at east I don't think she did. (If she did massive apology.) On Tuesday my heart stopped and the ambulance crew injected adrenalin in to it. I was then in A&E for six hours followed by 24 hours observation. I think that qualifies as an emergency but she sounded like she didn't give a damn. Its pretty terrifying having your heart stop. Dr Watt's knows my history and back story and I need an urgent change of medication. The person who called the ambulance was my neighbour. He saved my life. He tried calling Sarum House first as I was in a dreadful state and he didn't know what to do. Surprise it was constantly engaged so he tried 111 and they advised to call 999 and get me to hospital. iii) The receptionists won't tell me if I have the right e-mail for Dr Watts. He gave it to me and it has an NHS.co.uk at the end. I presume it is the right e-mail but its frustrating not knowing if he checks it. I haven't had a reply. So to conclude I think three stars a fair reflection. The doctors are highly skilled and profession but, like any practice, some staff are overworked, tired and maybe a bit ratty. Also the line contantly being engaged and then getting through after 50 calls which are engaged to then be put on hold for twenty minutes, even if its an emergency, poor.

Easy to get a same day appointment to have our 3 year old seen. Very short wait in waiting room. Thank you!

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Nuffield Health Hereford Hospital

Venns Ln, Hereford HR1 1DF, UK – 01432 355131

I was admitted on a day case for an Umbilical Hernia repair 6 weeks ago and cannot fault all the team, surgeons (Mr Grocott, a truly lovely man) theatre, scrub nurses, sisters, nursing staff, catering and even reception ladies. My room was impeccable and such a treat especially as my op was funded by the NHS. My Sister in charge of me for discharge, walked me out to my waiting car driven by my husband and we safely arrived home after husband tried to avoid all the pot holes. I highly recommend the Nuffield, Hereford and hope that a hip operation I will need in the near future will be with them even if on the NHS. Thank you everybody and by the way, it's all healed nicely and I am up an running once more, apart from the dodgy hip.

I had a really good experience at this hospital, as a day patient for an operation on my knee, and cannot praise them highly enough.

Hereford County Hospital

Stonebow Rd, Hereford HR1 2BN, UK – 01432 355444

Arrived in A&E at about 4pm with a traumatic wound to my lower leg. I was seen very quickly and by midnight was on the ward after a fairly lengthy op. Every single member of staff that had any dealings with me was truly wonderful from the surgeon, to the other doctors, all the nursing staff, they were all friendly, comforting and determined to take care of me. Every detail of my treatment was explained clearly and they all went well beyond what I could have expected of them. Thank you all so very much - you are truly amazing.

Very mixed experience here. Arrived with a 4yr old child with possible ingestion of toxic substances, but took over 4 hrs to be seen at A&E..... With parents with older children with strained wrists kicking up a fuss and consequently being seen before us. When we did finally get seen, ended up being admitted to the children's ward. They were fantastic. The porter who transported child up was brilliant and made him laugh, even at 11pm. The children's ward staff were friendly and made our stay easier for both me and child.

I owe my life to the wonderful care from the Haematology Department and the Macmillan Renton Unit. Dr Willoughby is excellent. I also had excellent help from the Oncology Department. However, the Respiratory Department could do with some training. Thank you. John Bowles
