"Welcomed relatively quickly and ..."

About: Nuffield Health, Exeter Hospital

What I liked

Welcomed relatively quickly and settled into a room. Needed an operation and spoke about my concerns to the surgeon prior to this. He was very nice and reassured me everything would be ok. Nice food, short stay.

What could be improved

Woke up freezing on the operating table after operation and although I was given another blanket and couldn't be moved until I 'recovered' I would have liked more care to be taken to ensure I was warm as didn't warm up until taken back to room. I was only in this situation for about 10 minutes but was extremely uncomfortable during this time.

Anything else?

Nice hospital, good staff, very good surgeon. Pleased with follow up aftercare.
