"I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend the team."

About: Galloway Community Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

The anaesthetist came to see me before my operation and after examining me and establishing my sleep apnea he said I may awaken during the operation, which horrified me. However, I awoke as surgeon Mr Srivastava was energetically manipulating my hip. I barely had time to congratulate them on their efforts before I drifted off again.

I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend Mr Srivastava and his team.

I was informed about every aspect of the treatment and am very thankful that I live in this country with our NHS.

The subsequent nursing and physio were excellent
