Written by a private patient

I had a procedure on my forearm four weeks ago at Circle Reading. Anaesthetics ,theatre staff and procedure was excellent. The day case admissions was chaotic and inefficient. I was first on the afternoon list, but was admitted last, so much so that the anaesthetist had to return and hurry things along. The nurse who eventually admitted me was lovely but was run ragged(not his fault!). This a ward with routine procedures, no emergencies so it should have worked liked clockwork. I’ve been a patient before and care has been excellent. Sadly that does not appear to be the case now. Trying to get discharged seemed a mammoth task, another nurse seemed intent on giving me wrong information. Fortunately, I’m blessed with common sense and medical knowledge so managed to extricate myself eventually. I thought you couldn’t go wrong with care at Circle- I was proved wrong and very disappointed.
