"Treatment of myself after day care"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

I was admitted to day care centre supposedly for operation, did everything I was asked to do was taken to theatre went what I thought was corrective surgery, when brought round and transferred to recovery ward I was told by staff that I had not been operated on but that the surgeon had just had a look.now the surgeon already knew what I was there for as I had already had an MRI scan and he had my found what he was going to operate on .my problem is not that he did not sought my problem out ,it is that he could not come to the recovery ward and explain the reasons why he did not operate ,surely I deserved some explanation.i left your hospital feeling very angry and frustrated by his actions and I am seriously considering not returning to this hospital again.
