"Hip Replacement Proceedure"

About: South Tyneside District Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

Exceptionally good care throughout.

Nothing was a bother by all the staff at all times.

I Stayed on Ward 7 to recover and found the nursing and physio staff very friendly and approachable.

Also the after care when I was discharged is very good plus the physio at the hospital gym which I am still attending.

Only downside, noisy seagulls nesting on the roof just outside the room windows.
