From the initial clinic appointment, the nursing staff ,consultation with the surgeon, pre assessment checks, the appointment booking staff, day surgery staff, anaesthetists and post opertative support, I can honestly say this was an exceptional experience. At no stage did I feel that my respect or privacy was compromised. I was always listened to and my many questions and additional requests were answered. Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional. The facilities were fine, however the ward was a little cold for my liking. The wait was long. This in itself was not a major issue because I was kept informed and there was a valid reason for the delay. I would like to thank all of the staff involved in the preperation of my treatment as well as the operation itself. They all played a part in minimising my anxieties. The seamless experience I have had suggests good team work across departments and possibly picking up slack where there may be shortfalls, although I did not see them. Rarely am I so impressed with every stage of a process but in this case I am. Thank you for the excellent service and attention to detail.
