"Orthopaedic Outpatients"

About: Leighton Hospital

I needed to go to the Orthopaedic Clinic for a check up of my Hip Replacement . Outpatients was very busy but everything was handled very efficiently , things were running late ,which is pretty much inevitable when everybody wants time with the consultants . The white board was updated so people knew how many minutes they could expect to wait . Well Done !!

Response from Leighton Hospital

Thank you very much for your recent NHS choices posting about your experience in the Orthopaedic Outpatient Clinic. We were pleased to hear that you had a good experience and everything was handled efficiently. As you state in your posting, it is a busy clinic and often there are delays which cannot always be avoided. We do try to keep patients updated about delays in the clinic so I am delighted to hear that the board in clinic was kept updated. Best Regards Sue Sarson, Acting Modern Matron, Surgery & Cancer Division
