"ERCP at Royal Perth Hospital"

About: Royal Perth Hospital / Stomach, Bowel and Liver Care (Gastroenterology and Hepatology)

(as a service user),

I have had three stents implanted into my bile duct since early this year and am due for my fourth soon. In each case where I have arrived at the Gastro Ward in the early hours of the morning, I have been impressed with the respect and care I have been provided in preparation and then recovery from this tricky procedure. I have also been comforted by the fact that, as a teaching hospital, there are many consultative processes in place to discuss my condition and this has been communicated to me in a timely fashion. I have also been treated really well on the extended-stay ward, where I have been located post-procedure due to my reaction to the ERCP. 

I have praise for the nursing staff and patience on Ward 8A as I believe they work under really trying conditions with a variety of patients. It may be that I am a regular patient and am now in "a relationship" with RPH to manage my diagnosed condition, but I have been comforted by the care and attention I have received from the public health system as displayed by RPH staff.

Dear vile bile

Thank you for your kind words about the care and respect received from staff at Royal Perth Hospital. I am sorry to hear you have been having such a difficult time which has necessitated ongoing treatment and recurring visits. It is however very pleasing to hear that your journey has been made a little easier by quality clinical collaboration and timely communication during your treatments.

Praise for the nursing staff on Ward 8A and the Gastro ward is well deserved, and I have ensured your thanks have been passed on to the staff involved; who I have no doubt will continue to provide comfort and excellent care. I wish you well for your upcoming procedure and for a speedy recovery.

Kind Regards

Dr Lesley Bennett
