I was kept waiting unecessarily most of the time at Manfield Day surgery unit. I should have been informed properly before I arrived that I had to wait three hours before surgery started.
I arrived for an 11am start and all I did was go through the paperwork and then had to wait until 17.15 pm before i was wheeled into surgery for something minor which lasted half an hour. My husband was not pleased at all.
But in general I thought the nurses were brilliant especially Helen, Rachel and Jo. I liked Jo's coffee and toast especially as I was fasting all day.
The registrar Miss Spitira was excellent; in fact first class service. Her surgery skills were brilliant.
