I am writing about my treatment at Rotherham District General Hospital in the Orthopaedic/pre-op wards. I had treatment on my knee joint.
The information given by the sister in the pre-operation clinic was excellent.
However, I felt annoyed at being sent to the day surgery, just to be told that they wouldn't accept me because of a blood disorder. I though this might happen and so had told the consultant, who wouldn't accept it - and set up the day surgery anyway. I think that I should have been listened to.
I would like to thank the nursing staff at the day surgery, as they understood how I felt, because they have to cope with people being sent to them unnecessarily. I would also like to thank the nursing staff and the sister in the pre-op clinic.
