I attended day surgery last week after 3 changed appointments. I was asked to arrive at 7 am I then waited a further 9 hrs until I was taken for my operation! The staff were lovely and my surgeon has done a wonderful job. I just think being made to wsit 9hrs was appauling. I was given no time scale and left alone in a waiting room for 6hrs. I became very upset and even more anxious. Surely there is a better system? I was in tears by the time the theatre care assistant came for me. I was asked not to eat or drink from 10.30 the night before, a total of almost 20 hrs!!! No wonder my blood pressure was low. I felt horrendous and could not wait to get out of there! I finally left without a drink or any member of staff checking to see if I had passed urine or not. Staff were lovely but the whole day unit is a joke.
