"delighted with my care whilst at the day..."

About: St Albans City Hospital

What I liked

I was very impressed with my care in the Day Surgery Unit. Everything went very smoothly.

I was told to get into the gown 10 mins. before I was wheeled down to the operating theatre

for my biopsy op. I was given a painkiller and anaesthetic by injection into my hand and

then I was waking up in the recovery room!! op. over and no pain. I was then wheeled back to

my bed and allowed to recover at my own speed. Luckily I recovered quickly and was given

toast and a lovely cup of tea. I left the hospital just after 1pm. All in all 5.5 hours.

Very slight bleeding for about 5 days but no pain at all.

What could be improved

can't think of anything that could be done to improve.
