"happy patient busy ward"

About: Wrightington Hospital

Anything else?

had my hip replacement done and was dubious to stay on ward 5 after reading recent reviews. I can not say a bad word about the staff they never stop and always have a smile on their face. It is a very busy ward and the aim is to get you home as soon as able, but thats what we all want right? food was good, surgeons thorough, physios tough. highly reccomended would be happy to return, would like enhanced recovery to be explained more next time
