"Long wait in day surgery unit at Royal Surrey"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

(as the patient),

The quality of the medical and nursing care was good.

The main problem is an administrative one. Patients are asked to attend early - in my case 12:30, as were a number of other patients, but surgery did not start until 2pm.

Since there were about 10-12 patients to see I did not get in for surgery until 5pm and there were other patients after me. There has to be a better way of dealing with this.

It might be good for car parking revenue for the hospital but is poor patient care - especially since many of the patients were elderly.
