Went into the Day Surgery Unit at St John's Hospital in Livingston for a tonsillectomy yesterday and was really impressed by the standard of care I received. Everything was very efficient and I wasn't kept waiting too long before the op. I was also very nervous as this was my first ever operation but the nurses, anaesthetist and surgeon could not have been nicer - the nurse the went into the operating theatre with me was a particular gem.
The nurse in the recovery room was equally nice, and the nursing staff on the ward were all helpful and attentive and made sure my pain was under control after the op. They also made sure to give me advice about recovery and all the pain meds I needed before going home.
