Surgery at Whipps Cross Hospital

Has anyone here had their surgery at Whipps Cross Hospital? What was your experience? I am due to have my surgery there - not sure what yet, but probably double mastectomy, hopefully with immediate reconstruction. Any experiences you might be able to share would be really appreciated - thank you!

Sorry I can’t help re: breast surgery at Whipps however I have been treated there and I personally can’t fault it.
My sister in law recently had major surgery to her bowel and again apart from the whole having to be in hospital she had great care and a very positive experience.
Good luck with your surgery. Xxx
