"Orthopaedics - hand surgery"

About: Royal Berkshire Hospital

Between Nov 15 and today I have been in the care of the Hand Surgery Consultant and his team at Royal Berks, for two separate operations on Dupuytren contractures.

I have been thoroughly satisfied with the work of everyone who dealt with me - the surgical team, anaesthetists, pre-op nurses, the Adult Day Surgery Unit, the physiotherapists and the admin support staff.

Everyone I encountered has been hard-working, careful, informative, polite, friendly, kind and thoroughly helpful.

I am very grateful for the attention of all of these conscientious and good-hearted NHS staff, who are doing great work.
