"A good, clean, caring hospital. An asset..."

About: Chapel Allerton Hospital

What I liked

I was treated with dignity and respect with regards to having a complete new knee replacement. The staff were most courteous and caring.

What could be improved

I would have liked to have had more physiotherapy after care. I feel that this would have been most beneficial and not just for myself. My sister in law had a new knee joint at the hospital just 2 weeks before me and she feels exactly the same as I do.

Anything else?

I feel I have started to get my life back with the new knee joint. In time, I hope to be at full strength. Everything is going to plan at the moment. Thankyou, so much.

Response from Administrative Support Assistant, NHS Leeds

Thank you for sharing your story on Patient Opinion and I am sorry for the delay in responding to you.

It was good to read about the success of your knee operation at Chapel Allerton Hospital.

I shall pass your comments onto the Patients Relations Manager and ask her to share these with the staff.
