What fantastic service!
Yesterday I attended the Treatment Centre for a Diagnostic Laparoscopy.
My admission time was 12:30, by 13:15 I had seen the Consultant, Anaesthetist and two nurses, one who took blood and the other who went through all my documents and helped me put bed socks on. (Wish I could say the latter nurses name as they were just so lovely)
At 14:00 I was taken to the operating theater where I again was greeted by the consultant and had a lovely chat with the anaesthetist... I then woke up an hour later in recovery.
I had felt so at ease I didn't even notice that I was being given the General Anaesthetic!
The two nurses in recovery were really kind and were so quick to help me when I was in pain.
They also helped clean me up - I really appreciated their support.
I was given a cup of tea and then taken back to my earlier bay where my bags awaited, along with a another cup of tea and a glass of water.
The lovely nurse that admitted me sat with me whilst the consultant discussed the findings and a way forward.
The consultant really listened to me and I felt safe and in capable hands.
Prior to being discharged I had to eat something and I was offered a range of sandwiches, my choice given to me with some biscuits and a cup of fruit tea.
By 1830 I was allowed to go home, discharge was quick and I was taken through the medicines and aftercare documents.
I came home feeling really so thankful for the NHS and the service I was given.
It was truely exemplary.
Thank you and well done!
