"An enjoyable and interesting experience"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

What I liked

The hospital put me up for a night under medical supervision without notice after I could not provide a responsible adult to look after me overnight after my full anasthetic.

I found it a warm, friendly, clean, modern environment. I was fed three times too, not including tea and biscuits.

I saw the specialist on a Friday and, given my circumstances, was operated on on the Tuesday.


Anything else?

I actually took sandwiches and a flask as well! And a book. Though you have hospital radio throughout the night (on earphones) and pay per view TV and movies if you want them, all on your own personal internet/phone/gaming console.

I would add that if you have to fast before a procedure, bring some electrolytye tablets, salts or drinks to avoid dehydration/headaches.
