"slipped disc treatment and hospital phobia"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

I have a morbid fear of hospitals but earlier this year i suffered a slipped disc and had to attend the physiotherapy department The therapist who carried out the therapy is first class I explained that I had a fear of hospitals and they helped me deal with those fears They also discovered a problem with my hip joint and discussed what would be required to put the hip joint right When I did go in for the hip operation they also arranged for one of their colleagues to come up to see me and give me some more assurances which shows how committed to giving a positive outcome to their patients Pleas pass on my thanks and praises
