About: Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Receptionists were pleasant & helpful & the consultant was not running too late..

What could be improved

No parking charges - hospital visits are stressfull enough.

Consultants should give the same report to your GP that they discuss with you at your consultation - my GP was completely baffled by the conflicting information in the report he received, compared with my recollection of the discussion I had with the consultant, which was corroborated by my partner who was also present. The Radiologist's report also offered a different opinion to the Consultant's.
