"Total knee replacement"

About: Westmorland General Hospital

I had a very successful knee replacement on 13/6/16. I asked for my operation to be after 12/6/16 and so I could not have asked for a more prompt service. I was treated with respect and dignity by everyone I encountered and also with friendliness and good humour. My treatment and care were excellent. The hospital physiotherapists were encouragingly strict. Ward 7 was well kept and the meals were good. My pre and post- op care were at Furness General, and liaison was very good. I also received home visits from a physio very quickly after discharge. I am extremely grateful everyone and thankful to be able to have such expensive and good treatment on the NHS.
