"Spinal Surgery"

About: Princess Royal Hospital (Haywards Heath)

I had a Spinal Fusion in November 2015, a second spinal surgery for me, the first being in 2009.

I stayed in Albourne Ward both times.

The ward was very clean and the staff were friendly and helped make my stay as comfortable as possible.

The staff were attentive, kind and caring to everyone on the ward.

I am now having on going physio (at the princess royal), in ten years of back problems this is the first time I have had physio at the princess royal.

The staff in the physio department have set me well on the way to a good recovery, giving me confidence in my ability to move well.

Without a doubt the best physio I have ever had.

The waiting lists and the route to actually getting the surgery were long and a struggle and still appointments for follow ups are being cancelled and re arranged for far later than they should be but Albourne ward were amazing as are the physio team there and of course the surgeon who has made my life so much more comfortable for the second time!
