"A reasonably prompt service"

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

What I liked

A reasonably prompt service

What could be improved

I visited the Maxillo Facial department for a simple wisdom tooth extraction. I came away from the hospital in more pain than when I entered, realising this after the anaesthetic had worn off. It turns our that, after eventually having to visit my dentist, as I couldn't get back into the hospital unless I visited A&E, the doctor carrying out the extraction had left a root in my gum. If they'd get it right first time, instead of rushing, wastage within the NHS would reduce dramatically.

Anything else?

Not impressed!!!
