What our Patients Say

Sandy Powell - Foot Surgery Patient

“I had a fantastic experience on the Day Surgery Unit at Rowley Hall Hospital and all the staff were fantastic, reassuring and friendly from the minute I arrived. I woruld recommend the Day Surgery Unit to anyone.”

Victoria Rollinson – Foot Surgery Patient

“I had surgery on my foot at Rowley Hall Hospital and I was only in the hospital for a matter of hours from arriving for surgery through to discharge. The experience I had on the Day Surgery Unit was wonderful and it was a lovely area to recuperate in after my operation. I liked the fact that there was a big chair to sit on in the pod on the unit instead of a bed which you normally associate with hospital wards and that helped me to relax straight away. The staff were all wonderful and I think this facility is great because you still have some recovery time but then you can return home as soon as possible.”
