"Thank you again for your expertise"

About: Western Infirmary/Gartnavel General / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I would like to thank Mr Rooney for the excellent job he did in replacing my knee last June 2013. It has made such a difference to the quality of my life being fifty six when I received the replacement. The recovery was quick and yes, Mr Rooney I did cycle Glasgow to Edinburgh seven weeks after op making three hundred pounds for local primary school. Thank you again for your expertise.

Dear P obra,

I would like to thank you for getting in touch with such kind comments about Mr Rooney - I will be pleased to pass these comments on to him and I'm sure he will be delighted that you have taken the time to provide your feedback.

I'm glad that this has had such a positive effect on your quality of life and what an amazing achievement to cycle that distance so soon after the operation!

Thank you again for getting in touch,

Best Wishes,
