"Fantastic care, uncaring reception"

About: The Whittington Hospital

What I liked

The nursing staff was fantastic, kept me calm before the actual surgery, made sure I knew what was going to happen. Anesthetists explained what they doing as they were doing it.

What could be improved

The reception staff at the day treatment centre were very rude. Did not explain to my husband what was happening, he was left for four hours, not knowing if I was in surgery, how it had gone etc.
