"Day Surgery"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

The staff on this Unit are very welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Thus, patients are put at ease and are made to feel confident that they are going to be well treated. The Sister in charge was decisive and led their team well. All staff were knowledgeable and worked well together as a team. Equally, the team in theatre worked well together and, as ever, my consultant was relaxed and communicated well with other theatre staff. I was constantly asked if I was alright and the little things, like a touch on an arm or an extra blanket given, meant so much. I was well monitored in Recovery and was made to feel like I mattered. From arrival to departure I could not fault how I was treated. I recommend this Unit without reservation. I am a retired Secondary Headteacher - in my opinion, this is the go to Unit if any staff training needs to be done. Thank you to all involved in my care.
