"Admission following fall and fractured neck of femur"

About: Victoria Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I fell and fractured my neck of femur. After a very bad experience in the A&E department I was admitted to the trauma ward and 24 hours later underwent a total hip replacement.

I want to commend all the staff in theatres from reception to recovery and to thank the surgeon and anaesthetist for their excellent care.
