"Day surgery in outpatients."

About: Northern General Hospital

I attended the Huntsman ward for a day surgery procedure on my ankle. All the staff were brilliant from start to finish, explained all my choices to me with regards to anaesthetics etc. The surgical team did a top notch job of looking after me and fixing me up as well. The nurses and care assistants were really friendly and made sure I got some lunch too! It only took me about a month to be booked in for my surgery after my initial assessment as well which was great. Recovery is going well at home.
