"My experience of day surgery at Airdale"

About: Airedale General Hospital

I had a laparoscopy on Tuesday last week and couldn't have received better care. I was really impressed by the team working on ward 20 in all respects. It was my first time in hospital and I was really worried. I was welcomed to the ward by the nurse who was absolutely brilliant. She made me feel at ease and explained everything that was going to happen, she was really cheerful and very kind. My gynaecologist was also really reassuring when he came to see prior to my surgery to make sure I understood was was going to be happening as was the anaesthetist. The whole team right down to the ward auxiliary staff were really brilliant. Thank you...
