"Once in thatre (day surgery), ..."

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

(as the patient),

What I liked

Once in thatre (day surgery), a wonderful caring and pleasant team atmosphere, which made the whole experience actually enjoyable.

I also felt in competent hands and totally relaxed as a result.

What could be improved

I was lucky enough to go in ealy and did not therefore wait long, but other patients were not so lucky. Could there be a maximum wait of half a day by having 2 intakes, one in the morning, one at lunch time? This woud reduce stress enormously and the physical well being of the patient
