"A First Rate Service"

About: Clifton Park Hospital

I had a full hip replacement January 2014 as an NHS patient and, I can honestly say I could have had better treatment if I had been a private patient. I was extremely nervous prior to the surgery and all involved in my care could not have done more to put me at ease. The treatment I received was exemplary. The surgeon did a superb job (a very neat small scar is the only evidence I have) and, all involved in my care were without doubt dedicated to their work demonstrating highly professional care carried out with dignity and respect. It is just over 3 weeks since I had my new hip and I am completely pain free and walking without the irritating limp I had developed. If, in the future I need further surgery, I would not hesitate to return to Clifton Park, in fact, I would not go anywhere else! You deserve all the praise you are given; Clifton Park is NHS at its very best.
