"The staff couldn't have been any better"

About: Holme Valley Memorial Hospital / Day surgery

(as the patient),

I went to Holm Valley hospital with a very painful bunion. The staff were very helpful and didn't have a long wait to be seen.

I was told the op could be done in one weeks time, fast eh.

The op went well and although I was awake while it was done I didn't feel a thing.

It's now two weeks later and my stitches are out, no more crutches and can walk a bit and know that this will improve in time.

On the whole the staff couldn't have been any better and the hospital was very clean and pleasant.

Thanks to the team

Hi Hollidaylil

I will pass your thanks onto the team at HVMH. It was great to hear you were treated so quickly and are now on the road to recovery. Keep up the good work.

All the best

Four weeks on I have hardly got a scar, no more pain and I can now walk a most perfectly.

That shows how good the surgeon and staff is

I would greatly recommend hvmh to anyone and have already done so.

Now I can really enjoy Christmas.
