"for myself very good for family not so good"

About: East Surrey Hospital

What I liked

My treatment was for hand surgery, Dupuytrens contractions. I attended the daycase surgical admissions Dept. I was seen by the doctor and the anaesthetist at 7.30 and at 8.00 was taken to the theatre. next thing I woke up in recovery after the operation which had lasted 4 hours.

My family arrived to take me home arround 4.30 pm . I have to say that everything was superb. my experience was the opposite of my wifes incredibly bad time just a few weeks before. I have commented on this and contacted PALS as requested. I even had my follow up appointment with the physiotherapist, changed from Redhill hospital to Horsham hospital, near my home.

thank you

Anything else?

still the problem of carers who accompany patients, getting information for collection at recovery ward
