"Hip hop"

About: Nuffield Health, Taunton Hospital

Went in for a hip,replacement early December. Fantastic care and service from the pre-med onwards. Think it partly depends on your attitude, but found all the staff delightful and could not fault a thing. Yes tv was a bit iffy, but in the scheme of things was not really important. Staff had time to explain things to you and in stressful situations such as hospital stays, communication is so important. When it came to recovery listen to the advice, read the advice and take it! They do know what they are talking about. I did not have a totally smooth passage, but as someone who is totally hospital adverse would I go through it again if I had to - yes without the slightest hesitation?
