"day surgery"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Anything else?

i first had to wait 7 hours before the operation without anybody advising when i would be seen. surgen was fantastic and the anesteic, nurses rushing around saying how under staffed they was. when i came round, my gown was not pulled down, i had a blanket over me which had holes in. after been moved to the ward, my notes were left outside on a table as i had the curtain pulled round. i just wanted to get out. i was offered nothing to drink or eat and was told i could leave. i now need another operation and have had my pre operation assesment and was told it would be done before christmas, i have heard nothing and theres 2 weeks left until the new year. then i will need another pre operation assesment.
