"Leverhulme Day Surgery"

About: Clatterbridge Hospital

I am 40 years old and went in to have a cortisone injection in my hip. My appointment was at 7.45am and I was back home well before lunchtime. I cannot thank the staff enough. From the second I stepped foot in the hospital they were so helpful, so nice, caring, friendly and funny. They kept me laughing through most of my stay, which was such a help as I am so fearful of needles, they kept my mind off the whole thing. I can't thank them enough for being the loveliest bunch of nurses I've ever come across. Even the tea they made me was lovely. Thanks for keeping my mind off things and for taking such good care of me. x
