"Day surgery centre"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I was very pleasantly suprised at the amount of effort and attention to detal that went in to my fairly routine hernia operation. The staff could not have been more caring or attentive to my needs.

If you are going to attend the day surgical centre have no worries you will be looked after with dignity and as an individual not just a number.

The whole procedure was very well administrated and carried out by knowledgable proffesionals in what must be a conveyor belt operation.

Whilst you cannot recommend a surgical visit to a hospital I feel this unit is at the top of the tree in making it as pleasant and informative as possible.

So a heartily felt well done to all the staff who helped me yesterday
