“I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for the excellent care which I received at Queens over the weekend of 28th and 29th March. I was admitted as an inpatient on ward E16 under the care of the vascular surgeons following infection of a gangrenous foot which required urgent debridement. The Covid-19 crisis was clearly taking hold and the whole hospital, cit and indeed the country was clearly preparing for an onslaught of medical need. Despite this, your medical, surgical nursing and ancillary staff remained calm, professional and unfailingly kind to me and my fellow patients. I was treated promptly. Communication skills and explanations were excellent and the quality of care was first-rate throughout and delivered with good humour and empathy. I would like to thank Mr Oluwole for agreeing to proceed with surgery under such difficult circumstances and for performing an operation to spare as much tissue as possible, his registrar for his expert and close attention and monitoring and the consultant anaesthetist for taking the time to perform a difficult local never block for my benefit when general anaesthetic would not doubt have been les trouble. The nursing staff in theatre and on ward E16 were kind, attentive and very caring in the best traditions of their profession and the NHS. I hope every concerned reads my thanks.“

My goodness sir, the treatment, the welcome, the professionalism shown to me on my visit. I was amazed but oh so very appreciative, I skipped out of the treatment centre walking on air. After the first six months of firstly being in great pain, hardly able to stand for more than 20 minutes & then in stork fashion! - no the nights up scratching the leg, that now gave way to varicose eczema, please imagine if you will the appointment being brought forward 3 months to help me - I cant ever thank yourself and your fab team for setting me free from the confinement my life had taken on. People at home have been wonderful I've had so many people help me, support me and the church also said prayers for an end to this for me. For such devotion to your job. I was no longer a number, I felt by your team also the help + the interest to get me better was paramount and to me and my friends and family - this has given me such a different look to the future I'd dreaded. Being alone it wasnt always as easy, as you know my husband died 10 years ago. I unashamedly prayed to be taken with him when the pain and itching were beyond my endurance. So please imagine if you will Mr Oluwole, Clare, Rachel and Daisy the happiness you have released back into my life. I am indebted to you are your team

Extremely professional with an excellent, reassuring and, when appropriate, humorous bedside manner. Took the time to explain every aspect of the proposed procedure and to answer any questions. Very easy to converse with, exuded confidence and knowledge of his specialist area.

It is a year ago since I had my varicose vein removed by Mr Oluwole. It has been life-changing for me. I wear dresses every day thanks to him. His expertise, kindness and gentle manner put me at ease throughout my experience. No one would ever know which leg was operated on and I would like to thank him once again.

After my all-clear last week at King's Mill, I wish to express my heartfelt thanks to you for your expertise, and to your theatre team for the way you treated me at Queens Medical. Everyone was so kind, yet so professional It meant a great deal to me. My family also wish to thank the high dependency units for their kindness and consideration, both myself and for themselves, when they visited. Last but not list, I wish to thank all the doctors, physios and nursing staff on ward E15 for their constant care and kindness day and night no matter what pressures they were under.

Mr Oluwole, I wanted to express my gratitude for your kindness, professionalism and expertise when you performed bilateral Endovenous ablation for me several weeks ago. The procedure was successful and I'm very pleased.
