What I liked
There was nothing to much to like about the hospital apart from that I did not have to wait very long to go down to the operating theatre.
What could be improved
Obviously the cleanliness as when I came out of my operation I was very ill when I arrived home, it was day surgery thy I was admitted to for a small procedure under general anaesthetic. After being I'll and going to my GP I was swabbed and 11 days after my operation I was told I had contracted MRSA clearly from th hospital as the MRSA was on my wound and also I was clear before going in for my procedure, as a result of this I am now having to take an extra 4 weeks off work as I have to have 2 clear swabs due to my occupation. I have been in a lot of pain since the operation and I contacted the hospital and asked to bring my follow up appointment forward as I couldn't make the arranged day and also informed them I had contracted MRSA I was not asked anything about it nor given an apology.
