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.

Had bowel cancer and was operated on by Mr Goede, who was an excellent, dedicated, caring surgeon. All the departments I came in contact with were well organised and the staff were all very caring. Ward 12a was excellent, all the staff were wonderful. Thank you all very much.

Went for routine blood test. Had rung previously to find when quietest times were, which was lunchtime. Was seen more quickly than anticipated and blood taken very quickly.

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.

Went for a consultant apt at one of the clinics. Ended up being seen an hour after my appointment time – don’t mind being delayed, but the receptionist could so easily have mentioned that things were running late and kept the waiting room up to date.

Went for an x-ray – arrived early – and was treated early. Staff polite and efficient.

Visited Wycombe Birth Centre and the pathology department. Staff friendly and helpful, appointments were on time and the premises was clean. Only issue was that the both departments were exceedingly warm.

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

When my much wanted baby was suspected to have a abnormality at the 12 week scan, the sonographer told me that she suspected there to be something very wrong with my baby but there was no one available to talk to me so just go home & enjoy the bank holiday weekend. I left your hospital utterly devistated, confused & feeling very alone & uncared for!

You have to wait along time for prescriptions but the overall service that I have experienced is good.

The support from the midwives at the birth centre have been exceptional.

An A&E service in High Wycombe is needed. If local you have to travel quite far to get to the nearest service.

After having a TIA, the doctors dealt with it straight away and referred me to a surgery so that I could have an immediate scan. Within days I had a consultation meeting and it was all done within the local hospital.

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.

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.
