What I liked

I was admitted to the Day Surgery Unit for a right knee arthroscopy. I was advised to have a spinal anaesthetic by the anaethetist but, due to never having had this before, I was anxious. The anaethetiist explained what would happen and I decided to have it. The team in the anaesthetic room were brilliant and really put me at my ease. During the procedure, I was talking to the anaesthetist and also listened to music. The recovery staff were brilliant as well and all through my time in the unit, I was really looked after. Thanks to everyone involved. I would certainly recommend this unit to anyone.

What could be improved
