"Saved me"

About: Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Anything else?

I've been under this hospital with my knees. I've had numerous major operations and all of the staff have been great, from the consultant to the domestic staff, I've been kept informed of all plans for my care, I've had great post op care. I came to this hospital for a second opinion and even though its further to travel its saved me my knees, I know that eventually I will end up in a wheelchair for most of the time but it would've happened so much sooner if I hadn't seen my orthopaedic consultant here, he listened to me and he really investigated and he found the huge problem. I really do thank this hospital and consultant epically, as I was only 26 and I'm now 31 even though its a long time to live with knee problems and mobility issues it would've been a lot worse. Really can't rate high enough
