"I had a fantastic hip & knee ..."

About: The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had a fantastic hip & knee replacement in June & November 2007. Both were performed by the consultant & his Team. Since the operations my mobility has improved in leaps & bounds. Now totally pain free & very much enjoying life.

To me - the RNOH transformed my life & I cannot speak highly enough of the Staff and the level of care given by All.

Over the past few months, I have visted Out Patients & the Orthotics Department & amazed at the welcoming extended to me.

A brilliant Unit operating at the forefront of Orthopaedic Surgery.

A big Thank You

What could be improved

For somebody who enjoys food - could be improved. BUT most people are in & out within 7-10 days so no real hardship and it is always possible to supplement from Visitors or the Shop wagon.

Hopefully the reconstruction of the Hospital will go ahead as a Priority. For 2008 parts of the hospital are a disgrace through no fault of the Management and outside their immediate control. The RNOH should be a Show Piece.

I thought the hospital was exceptional clean & could not be criticised.
