"Hip replacement experience"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

Anything else?

I was very scared of the whole experience, but everyone in the orthopaedics department and Amesbury ward was so reassuring and helpful for the whole time I was in hospital and that made my whole stay much better than I anticipated. The staff were, without exception, efficient, calm and helpful and I could not have wished for a more positive experience. The Consultant was a star!
