"Having had my first total knee ..."

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Having had my first total knee replacement at the adjacent private Regency Hospital, I had my second on 09 September 2008. The surgeon in each case was excellent. The standards of cleanliness, nursing care and food were noticeably superior in the NHS District General Hospital, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

What could be improved

Nothing of significance.
