A recent patient at The Foscote Hospital, Janette Keen, from Oxford, said: “I decided to have my operation at The Foscote Clinic because I have used BMI hospitals before and have always been very impressed by the standard of care they provided. My recent stay at The Foscote Hospital was a very enjoyable experience due to the care and attention of the nursing staff who were always happy and willing to help me any time day or night. My Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon Mr Oliver Cassell, was very reassuring, understanding and advised me every step of the way to ensure that the outcome of the operation was as close to what I wanted to achieve as possible. I have to say, a month after the operation, I am happier with the result than I thought I would be. I would definitely recommend Mr Cassell and The Foscote Hospital to anybody who was thinking of having any procedure done. I don't think you could be in better hands the whole experience was marvellous, even the food was lovely.”
Mr Oliver Cassell, Consultant Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon at The Foscote Hospital commented, “I have been practicing at The Foscote Hospital for over ten years, and am deeply appreciative of the superb level of personalised service the nurses, staff and other consultants at the hospital provide to patients, Being in hospital can be a very stressful experience for patients and their families, so we all work together as a team to do all we can to ensure that patients receive top-notch care in a clean, comfortable and friendly environment.”
