"My thanks go to the staff on the day case unit,..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

What I liked

I would like to thank the wonderful staff on the day case unit at Macclesfield general hospital, particularly three members. They were all so caring, reassuring and professional. They were very much appreciated. Thank you.

What could be improved

I think on the whole they have the day cases down to a fine art, my only concern was that the post-op care felt slightly rushed, they certainly couldn't get me home fast enough, for me, with such good support from family, this was not too much of a problem, (just a bit of a shock) my concern would be for those going home with less support, but I feel sure they would have contingences in place for individual circumstances.
