"A chance of getting my life back"

About: Wrightington Hospital

I was treated at Wrightington hospital in July 2015 with a THR after months of deterioration in my mobility due to an under-developed hip socket , which led to virtually becoming housebound& attempts. I could not fault the treatment & professionalism of all of the staff I came across from pre-ops, tutorial, the surgery right through to discharge on second day after my replacement. Nothing was too much trouble on the very busy ward, the staff were very caring & helpful. Any concerns or questions were dealt with & help was always there if needed. Yes the ward is of an old fashioned layout, but that had no bearing on the excellent care & treatment of patients. The hospital is a very busy place & no wonder as it clearly is in great demand due to it being a centre of excellence. Five weeks after my hip replacement I am now pain free & can walk better than i have in years, yes im still recovering & hope to continue to do so. I cant thank Ward 5, & the team at Wrightington for giving me my life back.
