"I had a knee replacement on March ..."

About: Rochdale Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had a knee replacement on March 9th 2009. Needless to say I was a little apprehensive but all my fears were unfounded because I was treated extremely well on Wolstenholme ward and also by the Theatre staff. They were and are a fantastic team. The whole experience I can only liken to being with a lot of your mates. ( although they did retain their professionalism )Everyone looked after me very respectfully.. Thank you so much.You are all great !!

What could be improved

Just little things like if the nurses say they are getting you something.....they did seem to forget and maybe come later than you expected. But, I suppose they are very busy and have loads of other patients to care for.

Anything else?
