I had my gallbladder removed yesterday and was extremely nervous about the proceedure. On arrival to the Surgical Day Care Unit, the staff immediately put me at ease, showed me to my bed and explained what to expect. They were very reassuring. When I arrived at the theatre, the staff here were equally reassuring and they done a great job of taking my mind of the operation. The anesthetic team kept chatting to me and before I knew it i was in the recovery ward! I can't thank all the staff who took care of me enough. Their care and consideration was first class- always asking how I was for pain relief, and offering cups of tea, toast and biscuits. I felt very safe, comfortable and relaxed. Thankyou so much to you all xx
