"Orthopaedic Department"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

The doctor was excellent a reassuring and thorough approach to my care, I visited them today with a lot of trepidation after an appalling day in the Trust yesterday

They also managed the pain as a priority which I found impressive and very perceptive

Sadly I remained reliant on Aand E to correct an error they made yesterday which was only resolved by Persistant and The help of non clinical staff in Pharmacy and AE receptionists

I anticipate the follow appointment in 2 weeks will be an unnecessary expense on the health economy as the receptionist for service provider for MRI scans told me they could not tell me whether I would have the scan prior to the follow up appointment or whether the doctor would have the results
