"Day Procedure Unit"

About: Sale Hospital / Surgery/Theatre

(as the patient),

Recently I underwent a procedure as a patient in the Day Procedure Unit.   I would like to commend all staff, not only in DPU, but in Patient Services, theatre and recovery, as well as the surgeon and anaesthetist, on the caring attitude they displayed toward me.  Everyone that I encountered was genuinely pleasant, caring and compassionate, and I really felt cared for.

Dear AJS

Mauricio, our operating suite manager, is in a training course today and I sure he will be very keen to respond to you personally when he returns.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you very much for taking the time to tell us your story and I am very pleased that your experience with us was such a positive one.

I will take great pleasure in thanking Mauricio and all the staff in theatre, patient services and our day procedure unit.

With kind regards
