I had day surgery at this hospital on 19/07/16. The interactions I had with staff were very comforting - I would particularly like to highlight the people I sat with as I was preparing to be anaesthetised. There was a delay in preparing the theatre so I was with a student training to be a paramedic and another staff member who were very friendly and the student was excellent in their bedside manner. I had had to stay the night post-surgery and the team of nurses in the Quex ward were very accommodating, letting my partner stay past visiting time in case I was able to go home that night. In the morning they let him sit with me as I was being discharged and happily answered my questions and showed me how to change my dressings if necessary. I did not see a doctor in the morning of my discharge, however. It would have been reassuring to have had a short visit, however I did feel well prepared for my self care at home. Overall I had a great experience with this hospital and the teams I interracted with.
