"I was treated at the day surgery ..."

About: St Thomas' Hospital (London)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was treated at the day surgery unit

and the care was very good.

I was very nervous as I had never had an opp before but was given amazing support by staff and talked through everything. The care when I woke up was great and I wasnt allowed to leave till I was ready.

What could be improved

The actual unit could do with a lick of paint! and it would be nice to know when you are due to have your op (as everyone arrives at the same time) as if you are anxious knowing when you are going in to theatre would help.

Anything else?

staff did a great job
