"Total knee replacement"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

Anything else?

Two weeks ago today I was admitted to Stepping Hill Hospital for a total knee replacement and I feel that I must give praise to the Consultant and his team for the care that I received right from my first outpatient appointment. His natural charm and humour immediately put me at ease and I felt that "This is a man I can trust". I have not been dissappointed. Every single person that I came into contact with showed the same care and professionalism, the theatre staff went out of their way to make sure that I was relaxed, the post op team were lovely, the staff on D2/D5 were attentive, dedicated and above all kind. The Physios The Ward Manager, taking the trouble to explain the procedure at the pre-op session was also a great help and I feel well worth their time and effort. All in all a first class service, thank you Stepping Hill.

Response from Stepping Hill Hospital

Thank you for your comments.

I sincerely apologise that these were not responded to in a timely manner.

This was due to lack of administrative support at the time which has now been rectified.

I would like to reassure you however that your comments were forwarded to the appropriate teams who were pleased to hear that you had a good experience at our hospital.

Kind regards

Patient and Customer Services Manager
