"I received brilliant care on both occasions"

About: Dorset County Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics Winterbourne Hospital

(as the patient),

I had a hip replacement at the Dorchester Hospital and a knee replacement at the private Winterbourne Hospital although it was paid for by the NHS. I received brilliant care on both occasions although personally I preferred the Dorchester where it was livelier on an open ward.
