Having recently undergone two total hip replacement operations at NTGH, I have nothing but praise for the outstanding care I received from the members of staff in every department. From the brilliant orthopaedic surgeon, through each stage of treatment: pre-assessment, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, anaesthesia, recovery and nursing on Ward 8, I encountered only absolute professionalism and genuine concern for my dignity and welfare. Two major operations nine weeks apart were a fairly traumatic experience, but the high-quality care, including excellent meals, helped me to stay positive and make good progress. I am now able to look forward to an active and pain-free future and I am so grateful to all concerned.
