"Day Surgery Unit"

About: Southlands Hospital

I recently attended the Day Surgery Unit to have wires removed from my knee. I was rather apprehensive following a very painful experience during my first surgery just 5 months ago followed by months of slow recovery but I wish to extend my special thanks to the anaesthetist who ensured that this time I had a far more positive experience. I also wish to thank my nurse, who was calm and professional at all times and kept us informed despite the problems caused by the surgeon failing to turn up as scheduled.

Response from Southlands Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are delighted to hear of your experience with us, especially the part about the anaesthetist and nurse who made the whole process positive. Unfortunately surgeons do occasionally have to delay elective patients if a life threatening case comes in unexpectedly and we can only apologise for your wait. We hope you are now recovering well.
