My name is Brian Wilson : I came into Rivers Private Hospital ( under NHS ) on the 7th May 2014 for Left Hip Replacement. I was treated so Good I would recommend Rivers to everyone I see, I was in Orchard ward -room 43. The Nurses and all the staff were all hands on,I had my own room, I thought I would have been in loads of pain Not at all I was up the same day by the Physio, By the time I came back to my room I made the to go up a set of 3 stairs and was shown how to do my exercises this is getting Better for me, It didn't hurt, The food well ! Very Good good size potions, I lost weight Great news for me never felt hungry at all, The cleaning staff were Very Good change the bed every day cleaned all the room / toilet-shower. There was a Staff Nurse who was very Funny and another kept checking to made sure that I was alright if I have forgotten anyone I'm Sorry but everyone including the physio department Helped I'm on the mend came out on the 14th May went Home came back to Rivers on Friday to see the consultant and the wound was looking So good he had One of the Nurses take out my Staples Know I am on the mend!
