"Knee Surgery, repair of torn cartilage."

About: Halton Hospital

Arrived 07.30, quickly booked in and seated in very clean ward. Greeted by staff, notes double checked, procedure explained. Very friendly and helpful. Slight delay, but we were kept fully informed. Anaesthetist arrived and checked notes and explained procedure. Short time later went to theatre. Theatre staff very friendly and reassuring. Woke in recovery, taken up to ward, given water, cup of very welcome tea and choice of sandwiches. Physio visited to ensure I was happy with post op exercises and use of crutches. Checked by nursing staff several times. Short time later given the ok for discharge. Excellent care by very friendly patient focused staff. Thanks to all.
