"Day care sugery"

About: Rochdale Infirmary

I have just attended day care surgery , from the minute I walked through the door into reception I was greeted with a smile by a very polite receptionist. I was then called into see the nurse who greeted me , took my blood pressure and checked me in .I was then passed to see the anaesthetist , then to the surgeon to sign the consent everything explained in detail. then I was escorted to a changing room to get into a gown . I didn't have to wait long to be called into theatre , The staff in the anaesthetic room put me at ease and we had a good chat , The nurse in recovery looked after me very well even putting a lovely warm blanket over my cold feet. i was given a very welcome cup of tea and sandwich , all the staff worked hard and had a smile . it was all very well organised and ran like clockwork . thank you to everyone who looked after me so well ...
