"surgery and ward 3 "

About: New Victoria Hospital (Glasgow)

(as the patient),

Have given service and punctuality only an average rating. This is because I had to wait almost 3 hours in my surgical gown before being taken to surgery.

However I understand that surgery is not factory production and emergencies can arise (though I was not told of any) so I did not let this affect my opinion overall,

Once change I would make though is that after a given time I could be assessed by the surgeon (just like pre assessment) as to the effectiveness of his/her surgery, to remove any doubts or worries on the patient’s part.
