"Choose Goole - great knee operation"

About: Goole & District Hospital (Acute) / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I needed a knee operation back in October 2005. My GP explained that I could go to my local Hull hospital (but there's be a long wait) or I could go to Goole (a small hospital 20 miles away). The wait for Goole was very low - two months later I had had the operation, I was home within a few days and was cared for throughout my visits extremely well. Well done Goole - credit to the NHS

Dear reggie,

Please accept our apologies for the delay in responding to your comments. These were placed on the website before our involvement with Patient Opinion - but we should have picked these up sooner.

Thank you for the comments that you have made; it is pleasing to note patient's positive experiences and these feed into our quality monitoring, particularly of Choose and Book options. I will ensure your comments are passed on to the Goole Hospitals Trust, North East Lincolnshire PCT which commissions the service on behalf of their residents and our own Choose & Book Commissioning Team.

Thank you for taking the time to feedback your experiences of this service.
