"total hip replacement"

About: Royal Derby Hospital

I have been a nurse for 40 yrs and can say the treatment I had was of the highest standard.i could not find anything to complain about at all .the sister and staff in the preassessment unit are so efficient and friendly.the physiotherapist x ray department all made u so welcome.i wish I had taken the names of the two hard working friendly young porters who took me to x ray .the ward was cleaned daily and the hard working nurses were so good .the doctor came each day to see for himself how you were.i will always be thankful for the way I was treated by the theatre staff as I was awake when I had my op and they did everything to put u at ease.the recovery team were rushed off their feet but looked after you so well .I hope I havnt missed anyone .with a big thankyou from a grateful patient .
