"My new hip replacement"

About: William Harvey Hospital

I am very slow in writing in praise of my care on Kings C2 during my recent hip replacement. The care given by all the staff, pre-op, theatre, and all ward staff and was fantastic in every way.

Anyone scheduled for treatment here should be assured of the highest standard of care possible.

I am due for my six+ week review by the surgeon, and I will be hoping to be scheduled for the other hip to be done asap.

Thank you to everyone involved, even enjoying the 2am blood pressure readings ..... all part of the care.

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you so much for your kind comments about your recent admission. I am so pleased to hear your hip replacement went well. It always a nerve racking time coming in for an operation.

I wish you well and hope you are continuing to recover well.

Thank you again for taking the trouble to write in.

Best wishes,
