"foot surgery in Day Surgery unit"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

I recently had surgery on my foot in the Day surgery unit [within a month of first seeing the surgeon]. It was my first experience of being a patient in any hospital and therefore my first experience of surgery and general anaesthetic etc. Everyone was so friendly, polite, professional and considerate that I was so at ease. I can not fault the care I received. I have since returned to have my stitches removed and again received the same level of care.

In addition, every appointment has been ahead of time-very efficient. Thank you to everyone and I mean everyone, I have met in fracture clinic and Day Surgery unit.
