"Total HIp Replacement Dahlia Ward"

About: King George Hospital

I was admitted to Dahlia ward on 13th May for a total hip replacement , I was extremely scared on being taken to Theatre they allowed my husband to come all the way with me and stay with me till I was wheeled in for the op After the operation I was quite late being returned to my ward so had missed the official visiting time but they made allowances and let my husband in to see me . I should of had a 3 day stay after surgery but after a few distressing setbacks I actually stayed 9 days . In all that time the staff were absolutely brilliant , so very caring and compassionate , I haven't got enough praise for each and every one of them . I am truly humbled to have received such wonderful care and could never thank all of Dahlia staff enough for all they did for me !
