If You Have To Be Ill, There’s No Better Place Than Hutt Hospital

Alan Tristram says that, if you are ill, then there is no better place to be than the Hutt Valley Hospital.

 I speak from experience.

Despite a crumbling building, everyone from the admission clerks onwards to the Operating Theatre staff in the Plastic Surgery unit are superb.

They work together like a well-oiled machine.

I put a lof this down to Professor Swee Tan, surely one of the best surgeons in the Southern Hemisphere. We are lucky he hasn’t been lured overseas.

I had a major cancer operation on my neck — and somehow he managed to delicately cut around my left eye to deal with any cancer problems in the nerves running to my brain.

A slight tremor and I could have ended up paralysed down one side of my face.

Thia didn’t happen thanks to him and a team of surgeons, anaesthetists, and nurses — six hours on the operating table.

Thank God for the Hutt Valley Hospital and all our public hospitals.
