"Care and treatment following hip surgery"

About: Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Three weeks ago tomorrow I had a total hip replacement at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary. I would like to say a huge thank you to all who were involved in my care.

My treatment was under the Enhanced Recovery Programme and I can honestly say that from beginning to end everything went according to plan. At each stage I felt that I was involved in all decision making and felt fully informed all the way.

We have copied your comments to all departments and staff who are involved in delivering care prior to, during and following these procedures, as I know they will appreciate your kind words. We are indeed fortunate to have such a committed and dedicated staff within NHS Dumfries and Galloway and it is always heartening for staff to receive such positive feedback.

I am glad to note that good communication with an emphasis on patient involvement assisted such a positive journey.

Thank you once again for taking the time to provide this feedback.
