"Day surgery"

About: Royal United Hospital

Very dissapointed in the set up of Day surgery you are in a mixed waiting room with gowns and with other relatives. Surgions did not have enough rooms to discuss patients surgery so was completed in waiting room. Very manic and not relaxing at all. Waited for 7 hours for surgery. After arriving fasted. Improvements are needed in this area. Medical Staff were good.
