On the day of the operation everything went according to plan. There was no unnecessary waiting around and all the staff and nurses were kind, helpful and reassuring. The pre-assessment day had also been a good day with no delays and any questions answered.
The appointment when the operation was decided involved a change to see the registrar instead of the consultant. This was fine except for the delay of 2 hours from the original appointment time that I am sure could have been communicated to the patients – instead we were left wondering what was going on and how long we would be waiting.
I also believe my first appointment at the hospital could have been better if there had been better communication between hospital doctor and patient about what I should expect. I was expecting a scan but this wasn’t yet confirmed.
