"Hip scope operation"

About: Hexham General Hospital

Planned as a day case after a chat with the anaesthetist suggested I stay overnight .

I had my op, recovery room was great and back on the ward the staff were superb in every aspect.Nothing was too much trouble and there were plenty of staff around which is unusual these days. Everyone introduced themselves from Housekeeping to surgeon.
