Although the heart department at Wycombe hospital is in need of repair and an influx of cash, their commitment is second to none (the heart staff)

Spent few hours at MUDAS being checked out after all acute problems had been ruled out by ED. Outstanding politeness, efficiency, speed of appointment, thoughtful staff, clean safe environment. Thank you so much. It was very reassuring and thorough.

Following my knee replacement 2 weeks ago, I want to shout out a huge thank you to our beleaguered NHS. From the very beginning, they expedited my admission by offering me a different surgeon, giving me a chance to meet him before deciding. The care I had as an in-patient and after discharge has been wonderful. THANK YOU!!

Cannot thank everyone at the Breast Unit enough! The process was fast and fully explained throughout. Lovely friendly bunch who made me feel really at ease.

Review 5 of 64

I was recalled from my annual mammogram as the radiologists notices a change in one breast. I was given an immediate appointment at the Breast Unit at Wycombe Hospital. The staff were so lovely that I cannot praise them enough. They were very kind, reassuring and explained very clearly what would happen during the appointment and who everyone was (at one point there were four people in the room). One member of staff told me at the beginning that she would be with me for the whole time, which was comforting. I was given a form to complete when I arrived which asked how I was feeling about the appointment and how much information I wanted to be given. I was asked this again by the lead member of staff during the appointment. So I was shown the mammograms and shown what had concerned them on the mammograms, both the magnified mammogram done during the appointment and the original one done in the mobile breast van. I had the magnified mammogram and an ultrasound, then it was decided that I should have a biopsy. This was painful but only for a few seconds and one person held my hand throughout. I was then given a follow up appointment to hear the results, which would have been the next week as soon as the lab results would have arrived, but I was going on holiday for a week, so it was the Monday as soon as I returned. Then I received a phone call a couple of hours before the appointment to say that all was clear, so I didn’t need to attend the appointment unless I wanted to.

I spent 4 days in ICU after surgery, I have a very rare life threatening condition and even though most of the staff had never heard of it, they all read up on it, the whole team were fantastic. The Consultant was brilliant. The experience from booking in to being discharged was excellent, I felt very safe.

Review 12 of 64

I was under Wycombe Gynae for nearly six years with no diagnosis and no treatment. In total desperation, bleeding to death and in agony, I went private and they found i had both endometriosis and fibroids. The gynaecologists I met at WGH had no expertise in endometriosis and rather than referring on to Oxford Women’s Centre they simply gaslight their patients by telling them there’s nothing wrong with them. I was even told that ‘I was lucky I didn’t have cancer’ and ‘did I know how expensive a hysterectomy is’ (!). Their complaints procedure was a farce, lots of date-quoting, delays and general smoke and mirrors. No timely apology, no assurance that they’ll review their processes to ensure this doesn’t happen to other women – nothing of value. There isn’t even a gynae ward at BHNHST – that’s how little they care about women. Its disgusting. Shame on them. It’s worth noting that their sonographers were excellent and did identify endometriosis but we ignored…

The health service was excellent and rapid. But I was already confused but finding the Main Entrance and the TIA Clinic was a problem because of signage around the building works. Once inside the building all was good and the people very helpful. But up til then my confusion only worsened.

Rachael at the Tia clinic was amazing and really cheered me up, made me feel well cared for and was so patient and understanding.
She dealt with many patients today keeping us all entertained and gave us all a unbelievable duty of care.
Defiantly deserves a commendation this lady.
Thank you for looking after us.

I found a lump in my breast the day before a Bank Holiday weekend. I Phoned my GP that morning.
I saw my GP an hour later that morning who referred me to Wycombe Breast Clinic for an appointment. I was given an appointment on 02/09/21.

Every single aspect of this clinic worked smoothly:
Mammogram & Ultra-sound run by Radiologists who talked me through everything. Then I was seen by the Clinic Sister & finally by the Consultant. @ each stage I was examined & everything was explained to me fully. I was signed off after approx. 3/hours & told that if I ever found another lump I must always do exactly as I had done this time & never to think that I didn’t want to bother the Breast Clinic again.

This experience was the NHS at it’s very best with everything running smoothly, professionals working together in co-ordination & keeping their colleagues & their patient informed at every step of the procedure. I had faster & better treatment by the NHS than I would have had if I had gone privately for this treatment.

Well done NHS Bucks healthcare trust & thank you.

Having been diagnosed and treated for bladder cancer, I wish to highly commend the urology department at Wycombe hospital. From the consultants and their team, the department nurses and the administration staff and secretaries – all work together to provide a great service and it’s very much appreciated.

I went for an echo-cardiogram in main outpatients. Parking was easy as it was a 9am appointment, staff were friendly and helpful. The clinician who did my echo-cardiogram made me feel very comfortable and let me know my results and what would happen next.

I just wanted to put in writing what excellent care and attention my elderly mother received recently at her first haematology clinic visit. The registrar was Ed Watson at Wycombe Hospital.

From the minute he came out to greet my mother and myself, until we left, he was absolutely great.

He spoke directly to my mother (not to me like some others do), he had researched her medical history and allowed her time to explain what had happened and issues she was experiencing with her medication. He spoke clearly and loud enough so, even though she was hard of hearing, she could hear and understand everything he was asking. His examination was very thorough and he took time, making her feel very cared for.

It made the whole experience very good for her, given that she was very nervous prior to the appointment.

Was refered from A & E Stoke mandeville to Urology ward C12 and was diagnosed folowing review and ultra sound for emergenct surgery, was operated on that afternoon at 3.30PM stayed overnight and then discharged on the following morning of the 7th, all I can say is what a fantastic experience, you are all special people and greatly deserve our thanks for all you do, our NHS which we all appreciate has daily challenges is still a precious and valued service and is envied the world over, thank you.

I was recently diagnosed with breast Cancer and from referral through diagnosis and treatment the service was excellent. The staff were considerate, kind and supportive even though there were significant staff shortages. The process for managing breast cancer in this area is excellent.

Have visited on numerous occasions for various medical conditions and have always come away really impressed by the staff at all levels for their kindness, attention and humanity and would like to express my deep felt thanks to each and everyone of them.
Waiting times are very erratic, from being immediate to up to three hours.
One other comment I feel I should make, it is regarding the removal of hand dispensers for antiseptic gel (not sure of correct terminology).
There used to be dispensers at the entrance and at critical points throughout the hospital? These have mostly all disappeared, yet I read in the press, that hospital based infections are on the increase???

I attended Wycombe Hospital outpatients (ophthalmology) for my five year old sons eye check up. The receptionist was very friendly and directed us to the appropriate waiting bay. We arrived 20 minutes early for our appointment, and we had only been sat down for two minutes before my son was called for his appointment. The Ophthalmologist was excellent. She was brilliant with my son, and very clear with letting me know the results of his test. They should be commended for their professionalism and respect for young children. An absolutely fantastic team taking care of my sons eyesight!

Visited MIIU recently with child and possible fracture. Whilst the treatment etc was fine, there is no attempt to manage expectations for those who haven’t been before and so don’t know exactly what happens next. You move from receptionist to nurse to X ray back to doctor(?) but no one explains the process in advance or how long it might all take. It will take whatever time it has to, and obviously, there will be some cases which take priority. However, it would be less frustrating if some communication could take place about expected waiting times, updates and what to expect.

I visited High Wycombe Hospital on 12th Sept for a colonoscopy check for men over 55. To say I was nervous would be an understatement, I was terrified, scared of the procedure and the possible outcome, but can honestly say the team within the Endoscopy department were excellent. From the registration where everything that was about to happen together with the possible outcomes was explained in detail. The medical team who preformed the procedure were quite outstanding in completing what isn’t the nicest of checks.
Thank you for helping me through this experience, and to anybody who may be having the check, go and get it done.

I have used the blood test services
X-ray services and antinatal clinic services.

All my appointments arrive in writing and text message on time.

The pharmacy services can take up to 45 mins. So mentally prepare yourself.

Blood test can take up to an hour, work out the average time and go for a walk grab a smoothie take a book. Don’t just sit there fraustarting yourself looking at counter.
Again mentally prepare yourself for the wait.

I have always got parking, leave early and have a back up plan should you not get parking.
I prepare by taking change with me, there is an atm cash point inside, i find the staff helpful polite and friendly.

It’s actually ok considering I fear hospitals. The lifts need a upgrade but overall it’s really not that bad.

What’s bad is the cheap packaging on the medication, they really have cut the budget there which is a shame.

Well done to the teams your doing a great job and it has a great sense of community when hanging around the downstairs lobby area.

Hospitals in London just don’t have that sense of community sadly.

Get well soon who ever goes there.

Outpatients: Orthopedic, X-Ray, Physiotherapy, and Pathology. I managed to achieve what I needed in these four departments in just 1½ hours.
This was due to the efficiency and professionalism of the staff in each of the departments. I was also struck by the cheerfulness of the staff, smiling and positive.
All were crowded but were doing everything they could to meet the needs of the patients.
Orthopedic / Trauma is a very busy department where I had a replacement half elbow last December. The consultants are ‘can do’ and the nurses highly professional and super helpful. X-Ray is a totally different culture to a few years ago, patient turn-around is rapid, smiling staff very efficient. Can’t speak highly enough of the Physiotherapy Department, such caring friendly practitioners and admin. Pathology is the Cinderella dept, understaffed, but they do their best.
Honestly, I was smiling for the rest of the day following my visit.

I spent a couple of nights at the Urology ward. Overall the experience was good and the staff were helpful (the ward was very empty at the time on the women’s side). One piece of feedback I would have was that I was stuck in bed – and my children came to see me. It was made clear that they were not allowed onto the ward and I should see them in a separate room which is for relative visits etc. It made me wonder what I would have done if I had been stuck in bed for longer and was not able to see them at all. It would be nice if children were allowed to see their relatives on the wards – even if it is at a specific time.

My father was admitted to the dedicated stroke ward (Ward 8) of Wycombe Hospital but due to the severity of his condition it became apparent that he was not going to recover and he received palliative care until he died about a week later. My family and I cannot speak highly enough of the care shown to my father and us. Sitting next to the bed of a mostly unresponsive patient gives time to become aware of what is going on around you and we were impressed by the care, kindness and encouragement shown to all the patients (many of whom were elderly, given the nature of the ward) from all the medical staff – doctors, nurses, OTs, physiotherapists, health assistants. The multi national teams all worked well together for the benefit of their patients

I have been dealing with SG for the last few days.

I would like to say how wonderful she has been and has gone above and beyond the call of duty in respect of my care. She has helped me as much as feasibly possible to get the appointment I needed for my baby’s scan next week. I would stress that her customer service is BRILLIANT and in my extensive experience I have not dealt with anyone that has a genuine concern for a patients welfare.

She is BRILLIANT at her job and should be given a pay rise, commendation or both in fact. You do not get many human beings that do such a good job in this day and age, and she certainly needs to be recognised for her endeavours!!

I have tried to get a blood test at Wycombe Hospital 3 times this past week. The ONLY parking available was in the 10 minute drop off spots (and this after queuing just to get onto the hospital campus) – however I was told, each time, that the wait time for blood tests was likely to be at least 15 to 20 minutes. So, no blood tests. I do genuinely wonder whether this hospital is being set up to fail, as so many services are moved away from it. I would also point out that the parking charges there are now at least £3.50 if one needs to be more than 30 minutues, which I find outrageous.

I would like to express my huge appreciation and gratitude to the Cardiology Unit at Wycombe Hospital for the treatment I received there on Thursday 18 January

On the morning of 18th I fainted at home. On the advice of my surgery my wife dialled 999. The paramedics arrived within 10 minutes. They were professional and sympathetic. They checked me over, got in touch with the cardiology unit at Wycombe and took me there in the ambulance. When I arrived a junior doctor was waiting for me and I was taken straight in for further tests and check-ups, including a chest X-Ray. Everyone I dealt with – the junior Doctor, a number of different nurses, an orderly who brought me a lovely lunch of a sandwich and yoghurt, the staff in the X-Ray department, the two porters who wheeled me around, the registrar I saw before being discharged – were kind and professional. On discharge, I was completely reassured that nothing serious was amiss and that I needed to rest to recover from this viral infection. I was pleased to receive the discharge letter there and then, and to know that a copy had been sent to my GP surgery in Hughenden Valley as well.

Went to breast clinic – was moved through a variety of procedures very quickly. All staff were kind and professional. Was very impressed. Excellent

I did however find it hard to find the clinic – there was some signposting, but having to pick one’s way past building works and cross roads where there are no clear crossing points did make me wonder on a number of occasions if I was heading in the right direction.

My GP spotted that I had a rising PSA score and referred me to Wycombe Hospital Urology Department which arranged for a meeting with a consultant , MRI using the Scannappeal equipment , ultrasound and prostate biopsies and then a follow up meeting .

So how did it all go ? It was from start to finish absolutely top notch , very friendly and professional . The consultant was very open , informative and expained the options clearly , the MRI equipment and team were the best that I have encountered , the ultrasound and prostate biopsies were expertly performed by an excellent team of four and I experienced no pain or after affects at all . Also the follow up urology oncology meeting was handled very well .I was particularly impressed by the sheer friendliness of all the medics , the consultant’s secretary and by the reception at the urology investigations section . I must also commend the team and communication skills displayed by everyone encountered , the panache of the consultant and the cleanliness and quality of all the facilities . Well done the NHS and Wycombe Hospital !

Attended the antenatal clinic for my 20 week pregnancy scan. The reception staff were friendly and informative. The sonographer explained everything really well throughout the scan and she was very reassuring, she tried her very best to complete the scan despite the baby not being in the most convenient position. They quickly arranged another scan for me in a few weeks time so they can complete the rest of the scan. I left feeling reassured and well informed.

My husband and I have had to have surgery on more than one occasion at Wycombe Hospital and are both still having ongoing care
We consider their service especially in the Urology and Cancer units as faultless
We have had a very bad experience in another local hospital and I would be very afraid to have to go there
I wish Wycombe was our General Hospital again , we consider it a centre of excellence and the staff from porter to consultants couldn’t be more caring

Antenatal Care – I had my booking appointment with my midwife at the end of August. In this appointment she requested my scans. When a few weeks later, the letter informing me of the date of the scan had still not arrived I mentioned to my midwife that I had not received a letter. She assured me she had requested them. I waited a little while longer until contacting her again to chase it up. Very helpfully she did chase it up and rang me to tell me the dates of my 12 week and 20 week scan. She told me a letter would be with me very shortly. Now, just under a week later the letter has not arrived, and I was advised to ring the antenatal clinic at Wycombe Hospital to double check the time and date.
If it were not for my midwife I would not be aware of the date of my first scan – and I would certainly have missed my appointment simply because I had not been informed via letter.

Review 63 of 64

I wanted to leave feedback since seeing something on facebook about Wycombe Hospital slowly closing down.
In August 2013, my husband had an MI (heart attack).
Had he been taken to Stoke Mandeville, he would have died.
Had be been taken to Wexham Park, he would have died.

But he was taken to Wycombe, where he was given immediate and life saving surgery and he survived. He was 55 years old at the time.

I can’t tell you how important it is to have vital LOCAL services.

Stoke Mandeville is not near High Wycombe and there isn’t a good road network between Wycombe and Stoke Mandeville.

My overall point is that the reduction of services at Wycombe is just a means of closing it by stealth. Understaffing it means that CQC inspectors rate Wycombe Hospital with “requires improvement” but the investment is not there to enable the staff to improve their service.
The people making these decisions do not care about who lives and who dies.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at Wycombe’s One Stop breast unit. Had two surgeries and chemo at Wycombe. Excellent care on the whole. But I think my assigned Breast Care Nurse is overloaded. I think Wycombe needs more of them. There are only four I believe, yet treatment goes on for up to ten years so they have too many patients.
