"Professor Hands Vascular Clinic - outpatient"

About: John Radcliffe Hospital

Having had a leg ulcer related to cellulitus I was referred by my GP to the vascular clinic. Car parking was easy, the blue waiting area on level 2 was spotless, the reception staff charming and helpful, I was seen before the appointed time and escorted to a private - very clean - consulting room. A student Doctor very pleasantly asked If I minded if they did the initial examination and investigation which was carried out most efficiently and the student was later joined by the professor who completed the task and also reviewed what the student doctor had done. A painless, excellent service carried out with efficiency and kindness and tremendous professionalism as - I have had the good fortune to have been treated at the professor before - is usual at this excellent hospital which the people of Oxford are indeed lucky to have. I would not hesitate to recommend the hospital to my family and friends - well done and many thanks.
