"Day case surgery"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Underwent an elective day case hernia repair. Excellent PAAC appointment . Quick booking on arrival for surgery and professional but friendly day case staff on C level. Comfortable room with toilet and telly whilst nervously awaiting surgery. Dignity maintained throughout and especially when being moved to theatre. Smooth anaesthesia with excellent peri op analgesia. I used simple pain killers post op and could mobilise with ease immediately after. All rooms looked clean. Nice cup of tea prior to discharge. I was, honestly, extremely impressed with all aspects of my journey through the system.
