"My experience as a day patient"

About: West Cornwall Hospital (Penzance)

I went to West Cornwall Hospital, Penzance on Friday Feb 6th for a procedure which required general anaesthetic. I arrived at 8am, and I was feeling nervous, but from the friendliness of the lady on reception, through to the student nurse, the nurses, the anaesthetist and the surgeon, I was put at my ease very quickly. The staff are excellent and made my visit a lot easier, and I want to say a big thank you to all of them.
