"Day care - Wisdom tooth extraction"

About: Manchester Royal Eye Hospital

Anything else?

I came in for an afternoon operation to have my wisdom tooth removed under general anaesthetic. I am needle-phobic and really don't like hospitals so naturally enough I was quite apprehensive about the procedure. However, from as soon as I got to reception to the time I walked out of the door I could not have been put more at ease by the friendliness and care that I received from the nurses and all of the staff that looked after me so well. The waiting from chairs were very comfy as well, and that strawberry yoghurt was amazing! Everything was fantastic start to finish! Thank you all so much. Please pass on my warmest regards to the team, lets hope the other wisdom tooth erupts soon! - All round great day out.
