"Great service, great people but....."

About: Calderdale Royal Hospital

Have been assessed for Dupytrens contracture. The consultants appointment was good. Choose and book worked well and i changed my appointments easily. I have just had a surgical pre-assessment, which was timely and really clearly explained. Really happy with all aspects of it. My only question would be that I attended a clinic at 18.10 one night. Surgical pre-assessment was not open at this time so i have had a morning off work to do pre assessment. Then because i am going on holiday I can't have it done until June (which is fine) but i will need to do a third visit for an MRSA swab. Ideally, I'd do a consultant appointment, surgical pre-assessment at the same time, with a discussion about dates to reduce my total number of visits pre op from 3 to 1 visit. I hope thats constructive.
