Following a sport injury I was placed on the waiting list inOctober 2014. Within two weeks I was offered a chance to have the knee repaired within two weeks by a private hospital under an NHS as it was going to be likely that I'd miss a waiting target. I refused as I believe in NHS and the timing was inconvenient work-wise. Within two days I was contacted with a provisional date (11 January) which was ideal for me. Appropriate appointments were made in preparation for that date. I arrived for my surgery in the morning as requested, operated by midday, released home by 16:30!!! Staff at Conquest are exceptional - caring, professional and efficient. The only slight grumble - post op information can be more comprehensive (FAQ type of a leaflet is a must), it might have been given to be verbally but after anaesthetic not a lot of it was retained. In conclusion - the Conquest is my local hospital and every time my family comes in contact with it we have nothing but highest of praise for its staff.
