"Surgical day case unit."

About: Burnley General Hospital

I attended the day case unit on Saturday 6th February. It is an extremely well run unit, the staff all very professional thoughtful and kind. Well done to the marvellous surgeon for the procedure they carried out, the surgeon's expertise is amazing assisted by their very able theatre staff they were excellent.

I had to spend another 5 hours at the hospital after the unit closed and was very well looked after on another ward until able to go home late on in the evening. Hats off to the surgeon and their staff who carried out 14 operations on Saturday 6th February. amazing.
