"Excellent Care in Day Surgery Unit"

About: Alnwick Infirmary

Anything else?

I attended Alnwick Infirmary Day Surgery Unit to have a bunion operation in March 2013. There's a lovely, caring, warm atmosphere All the staff were so supportive and sweet with me, as it took quite a while to get my foot anaesthestised prior to the operation.The female day bed ward was very comfortable, warm and clean.
