"Stoke Mandeville saved my arm"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

After an injury at work my GP sent me straight to Stoke Mandeville to see a bone specialist who had to operate right away or I would loose my arm. I was petrified but the staff on ward 15 and 16 and Dr Budneys team were top notch. (sorry of spelt wrong). Also the physios were great although the wait times was a little long. They saved my arm and after 3 surgeries my arm is so much better. Thank you so much especially Dr Budney, George We lead and the rest of your team.

Dear sleepymum

Thank you for taking the time to post comments following your visit to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where the decision was made to operate immediately on your arm.

I can understand how worrying this must have been, and am therefore pleased that you felt due to the treatment and care you received, from Mr Budney and the staff on wards 15 and 16, resulted in your arm being saved.

I will share your compliment with the staff involved in your care, who I am sure will feel rewarded and further encourgaged to continue delivering compassionate care.
