"Day unit"

About: Southend Hospital

Had a very tricky tooth extractionand another tooth removed by the staff from the oral and maxillofacial department.Staff were informative,welcoming and reassuring from my first constulation appointment right up to the surgery for teeth removal .All the nurse's on the day unit were lovely and polite.can't thank the lovely health care assistant who came down to the theatre with me as I was nervous and kept a dental and neddle phobia person calm.Once I came round and was back on the ward the same health care assistant made sure I was okay.I some how managed to disloge a blood clot forming on my gum and the nurse's were very quick at sorting it out .You can tell all the staff up on the day unit love their job and enjoy their job.
