About: Hexham General Hospital

My sincere gratitude to all involved in my total hip replacement, (Sat. Oct.25th),merely 8 days ago! My fears were allayed at my pre-op assessment thanks to patient, caring professionals and 22 days later, thanks to the expertise of the surgeon and the anaesthetists, I am the proud owner of a functioning hip joint. My after care on Ward 3 was exemplary. I have rarely come across such a dedicated group of professional, considerate people. Their attention to detail concerning my care was faultless and their friendliness and willingness to assist was such a positive addition to my recovery process. Thank you, all of you, from the bottom of my hip and heart! Thank you also to catering and cleaning. The food was excellent as was the standard of cleaning in my room. Caroline A.
