On the whole, very satisfied, the operation went well, and the staff were very helpful.
Two minor niggles - the consultant had asked whether I wanted the procedure under general or local anaesthetic, and we agreed to a local.
On the day, this had been ignored, and the procedure was done under a general anaesthetic. Secondly, audible privacy was pretty non-existent, and I heard the full discussion between consultant and patient in the next bay.
This included graphic details on his circumcision, including the effects of the local anaesthetic on his penis. Doubtless, the patient heard all details on my procedure.
If possible, maybe patients could be given an option to have such discussions in private.
