"i was only in for orthopaedic day case surgery"

About: Orpington Hospital

I was in for foot surgery 17/7/15 . From start to finish consultants , anestetic , recovery and ward staff were all very proffectional ,kind ,caring . I was rather nervous but should not of worried they made me feel at ease from pre op checks to finish when I honked out of there on my cruches . Iv never been to that hospital befor but I would return again and not be worried at all , I don't know if it's because it's smaller then most hospitals so you feel like a person and not a number or just the staff care a little bit more buff would always recommend it to anyone that says they are going there in the future.
