My daughter had a day surgery op and I have to say all the staff from the day surgery room through to theatre and recovery too were very good, friendly, professional and reassuring for my 15 year old daughter, thank you �

It's a very good hospital, all the staff are very nice and friendly

I just wanted to pass on my thanks to your excellent staff who were on duty early Thursday morning 3am at Cheltenham A&E this week. They treated my husband in a professional, polite and caring manner. Thank you! Zoe

The care and treatment was outstanding, the staff were amazing and always there when you needed help in anyway, the staff at snowhills ward give your self a pat on your back.

I attended the Day Surgery Unit at Gloucester Royal for a procedure.
People are very quick to criticise the NHS these days but I wanted to thank and compliment all of the staff who looked after me today and ensured everything went to plan. I was kept informed, reassured and was given the highest standard of care pre and post operation. 
I work in the NHS and I often whitness negatively towards a service that is under tremendous pressure. On what I whitnessed today I am proud and so very lucky to work in and use this wonderful service. 
Thank you GRH day surgery unit all of you are fantastic!

Visited Kemerton ward for a day surgery, very well looked after, thanks to all staff.

Yesterday I get a phonecall at 8 a.m. inviting me for my knee operation at Cheltenham General Hospital today (rather than on 18th) - Glad to get it done at short notice, I was up at 6, there for 730 a.m. waited 5 hours ... go through all the processing and angst, ... at 1215 operation cancelled due to lack of bed!! so now I wait for new date - meanwhile my own appointments, meetings and events next week have all been cancelled ...Damn! And I wasn't the only one to experience the same thing ...

but the nursing staff were all very friendly - just would have liked some indication earlier of reasons for long wait - and then the eventual cancellation.
