"The surgical team and anaesthetist ..."

About: Bedford Hospital South Wing

(as the patient),

What I liked

The surgical team and anaesthetist were all very kind and supportive, as were the nurses on the Tavistock ward.

What could be improved

Uncomfortable chairs in the Tavistock ward waiting area prior to operation, especially after 3 hours! - I didn't mind waiting at all, but would have liked a more comfortable lounge area?

Anything else?

Very speedy and efficient care.
