Had replacement hip op last week. Discharged after 2 nights, very impressed with standard of care all round. Everything very clean, own en-suite room, staff helpful and attentive. Only 2 criticisms are re the hospedia tv service which is an absolute rip-off and the signs to guide visitors to the NE Surgery Centre ( or should it be the Peter Smith Surgery centre? Why 2 names for the same place?). Is it not possible to have the main doors open at the week-end so visitors don't have to search for an open entrance and then find themselves in a maze of poorly-signed corridors? Otherwise NHS at Q.E. provided brilliant service.
