I know this is an old message but I've only just read it and felt I had to reply.  

My husband and I have been members of Benenden hospital for 40 years.  During this time my husband had a successful operation and I've had two.  The nurses are wonderful.  Unfortunately a few years ago I needed further surgery for a prolapse and had an operation that left me in agony afterwards.  Not only did the surgeon deny I had a problem, so did his colleagues.  I complained to the governors, I was persuaded by Ms Mason to go back but still they denied a problem and I was treated as a liar. I found out through the NHS I have pudendal nerve entrapment, which they said is rare but well documented.  I believe its when things go wrong you know how good a hospital is, as they just stood by their dr.  I understand things can go wrong, that's why you sign a form but if he'd listened to me, it would have been reversible if he'd taken the stitch out within a week to 10 days.  He never apologised, he obviously didn't take the oath he took seriously.  I would be very wary in recommending this hospital.  They now have NHS patients anyway, so are always full up, so paying to be a member of a hospital you can go to as a NHS patient seems pointless. At least if you go as an NHS patient you can complain to the NHS should something go wrong and have their backup.
