"Day case surgery at Frenchay"

About: Frenchay Hospital

I attended the unit for the removal of a lipoma. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and later the nurse who would be overseeing my care throughout the day. I was impressed that she asked what name I would like to be known as, as I like to shorten my name. The operating staff were friendly and down to earth and happy to answer any questions I asked. Indeed we even shared a joke or two on the operating table! After the operation, I found the recovery team very attentive and keen to help in any way they could. I would like to thank all of the staff for the high level of patient care they displayed,especially the consultant and his team and the recovery staff.
