What our patients say

My first experience for Spire Hospital has been absolutely amazing, from my first consultation with my consultant Mr Bennett through to my follow up care after my surgery. I was extremely nervous, didn’t know what to expect, I had never undergone surgery before. I was thinking that an operation for me might not be possible as I did not consider myself to be in the best of health, I also felt so embarrassed. Within minutes of meeting Mr Bennett I found myself put at ease, he took a lot of time explaining the benefits, uncertainties and risks of having surgery. I was very confident that Mr Bennett could do my operation, and do it well. I went ahead and had my surgery for a Breast reduction, Fleur de Lys apronectomy and hernia repair. Amazing surgeon, charming, kind, funny, a real gentleman. I will never forget him. Your cosmetic nurse looked after me so well, I will never forget their kindness. I would have no hesitation in recommending Spire to anyone, and if they are looking for a cosmetic surgeon then you wont find a more skilful, kind and lovely man than Mr Bennett.
