"Good care, but long waiting times at Northern General"

About: Northern General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a bone replacement in my shoulder at Northern General, first going to theatre admittance, then Huntsman 3. I was happy with the care given by the medical team and nurses on the ward.

However, less waiting time before being admitted would have been good. My pre-op assessment was done in March, but I was not admitted until July, therefore some tests had to be re-done. This seems to be wasting nurses time.

Thanks to nurse Jenny in admissions dept.
