About: Fairfield General Hospital

What I liked

I would like to pass on my thanks to all staff on ward 3 day case unit. I was treated with respect and care and informed off what was going to be happening all throughout my treatment. I would particularly like to mention the two members of staff in the anaethatist as they reassured me as I had not been put to sleep since I was five and I was apprehensive. The only negative thing I can say is that I felt I was asked to get up and get dressed too quickly after coming back to the ward but I understand there is pressure on space . Thank you very much to all concerned this put a little faith back into my local hospital as I have had previous negative experiences..

What could be improved

I feel a little more time to come round from the anaestetic would of been nice as I felt dizzy and light headed.

Anything else?

The two members of the anaethatist staff were very calming and reassuring, Please pass on my thanks and thank them for the kindness throughout.
