"Compliments to the whole team"

About: Wrightington Hospital

I am writing to thank all members of the team that are and were involved in my knee replacement on the 13th January this year.

I have never been an in patient in hospital before and was a little apprehensive,I needn't have worried.

From the initial consultations at Boston house right through to the operation, subsequent aftercare and medical discharge into the hands of the physiotherapist I have been met with nothing but kindness and friendliness.

Although still a little sore and stiff,I wish to convey my heartfelt thanks to the whole team for their care and attention.

Can't get used to doctors having their first and preferred names on their coats.


Thank you once again,

Mal Murphy.
