"Orthopedic outpatients"

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

I went in for what I thought would be a quick consultation about my shoulder, and within 2 hours I had x-rays, ultra sound scans and an injection in my shoulder (rotator cuff impingement). Two days later all the pain has gone and I feel so much better. I'd like to thank all the staff so much for making my shoulder feel much better. I still can't believe I had all that done in two hours, quite incredible really. That's the forward and not months waiting for the next appointment.

It will be a pleasure to pass on your thanks.
