"hospital stay"

About: Grantham & District Hospital

I have been under the same consultant for over 10 years at Grantham Hospital and have had lots of operations in that time. My last stay was for a week when I had my hip replaced. The ward was very clean, staff was extremely friendly, and on one of the day's I was feeling really down, due to the anesthetic I think, however, the physio team came to start working my hip but could see I was tearful at the time and they said they would come back the next day. I found this very caring of the staff to leave me alone at the time. Grantham, will always be my first choice, even if it does take me an hour to get there. My consultant I have is brilliant, and I know I have a lot more operations to go. Thank you Grantham Hospital.
