About: Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I asked to be referred to the specialist Hand Unit for wrist problem and also my son to be referred to the Upper Limb Unit for assessment of his broken collar bone. This was straightforward, we were seen quickly and efficiently and reassured about diagnosis and treatment.

I had previously undergone foot surgery 18 months before at the Orthopaedic hospital and can't fault it. With its long standing reputation, there is a very caring atmosphere throughout the whole team. Cleanliness is exceptional, infection rates are consistently low and the nurses, physios and doctors all know exactly what they are doing and are up to date with the latest treatments and technology.

The hospital sets the standards for all NHS Hospitals to aspire to.
