"Orthopaedic - Northern General - not bad but too long with nothing to eat or drink"

About: Northern General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I liked the very friendly staff.

I arrived at 7.00am for a 1/2 hour operation which didn't happen untill 4 or 5pm. There was no food or drink offered untill 9 pm when requested by me after 26 hours without anything but sip of water for pre-med tablets. Patients arriving after me had operations before me and some even went home before my operation took place. When it came round it was too late to go home and I had to stay overnight.
