      Mr Bidmead is outstanding. While I was waiting to go into surgery, one nurse told me that the staff at the hospital who have gynae issues all want to go to him. He is down to earth, understanding and I had total confidence in him. I had endometriosis removed and it all went well with barely a scar.
