"My hip operation and the good treatment I had from staff at Ormskirk Hospital "

(as the patient),

Some months ago I was in so much pain I could not walk much I was sent to see a surgeon in Ormskirk Hospital. The surgeon was so good and he explained anything I needed to know and when I went in to Ormskirk Hospital to have a full hip replacement I was treated so well by all staff I had. A few problems yes but they helped me and looked after me when I was so scared. The surgical team where so good and as I come from London and all I can say is to me the hospital's in your area here are so good. I had to have a test done at Southport and Preston and I have had the best treatment where nothing has ever been too much for them. I want to thank all the staff at Southport and Ormskirk and Preston for every thing. Thank you!
