"Day surgery 23rd Dec 2014"

About: York Hospital

My 14 yr old son Thomas had surgery to 'reveal a tooth'. He was very nervous about having a general anaesthetic. I was very impressed by the two nurses on duty that afternoon in Bay 6 and also the anaesthetist (who joked with Thomas about his football team) and the doctor. They put him completely at ease and made him feel more at ease. They were very kind. So much so that he now says that if he had to have surgery/general anaesthetic again, he wouldn't be worried. Many thanks. Please pass on our grateful thanks
