I would like to express my sincerest thanks! You have truly changed my life since my operation.

Having this surgery was the best thing I’ve ever done! Thank you to everyone at Sancta Maria.

Every member of staff encountered made me feel confident and at ease for my very first ever stay in hospital. Truly grateful.

The nurses were friendly and put me at ease. The Consultant was professional and explained everything that I wanted to know.

It was like a 5 star hotel! Fantastic medical care and service next to none. Wish I could have stayed longer.

I had breast enlargement by Mr Ghattura I would highly recommend him he’s professional yet friendly and puts you at ease. 1st class surgeon!! I only have good things to say about Santa Maria and Mr Ghattura please pass on my thoughts to him.

I had a minor op conducted by Mr Roger Morgan today who is a credit to his profession,I was well impressed with the whole experience, thanks to all staff who looked after me. First class.

I would like to thank all the staff at Sancta Maria, Swansea for their outstanding care whilst I had my foot operated on last October. Mr Williams was the consultant surgeon and I cannot thank him enough. My foot had previously been operated on and as I am a veteran runner I was very concerned about the outcome. Well I am delighted to say I completed the Plymouth half marathon two weeks ago.

HMT St Sancta Maria Hospital follows rigorous infection control procedures, and as a result has had no known occurrences of hospital acquired MRSA.

Menu Options and Refreshments

All food is prepared on site and local suppliers are used wherever possible. Please inform us of any special diets, which will be well catered for.

Visitor meals can be ordered, so that visitors can eat with patients in their room. A drinks service is also available.
