"Total hip replacement March 16"

About: St Michael's Hospital (Hayle)

I can not praise this hospital and it's fantastic staff enough!!! Was dreading my stay and operation, and whilst an operation is not very pleasant, everyone went out of their way to make this traumatic time as easy as possible.

During my five day stay I saw all members of staff working extremely hard. They left you with the impression that they genuinely cared. I was treated with nothing but kindness and respect, and I can not tell you what that meant to me during this vulnerable time. The hospital was squeaky clean, regular hand washing visible everywhere. Peaceful environment, good food and very regular (it sometimes felt almost to regular lol) attention from the physiotherapists.

I have had many hospital visits and stays in the past, some recently as I have just had a c section delivery but this was a masterclass in healthcare provision, private or nhs.

Excellent we should all be very proud of our nhs and it's staff!!

I simply can not thank you all enough. If you are lucky enough to have your treatment here my advise is worry not ...
