"Physiotherapist department awesome!"

About: William Harvey Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I have been with the physiotherapist department William Harvey for a few years now, due to an ongoing limb issue which the surgeon at the time said was fine I got a second opinion from a different hospital as I didn't agree to find I was misdiagnosed all the way through it the physios remained neutral and positive but they all came and checked on me as they heard that I had the surgery at the other hospital and checked on me and gave me hugs, they have kept me going, wiped my tears and put joints back together given me humour to pick me up and backed me up when my limb was at crisis point .... I finally now can see the light and feel if it wasn't for the physios helping me I wouldn't have found the right diagnosis and now have the stability back, people like Stephen and the swimming physios based at the Harvey are amazing people who in my mind are my little rays of sunshine............ The physios are the true quality of care within that hospital ........ I can now live again........

Response from William Harvey Hospital

I can really understand the distress, frustration and worry that you must have been going through with regard to getting the correct diagnosis for your limb, but I am so glad to hear that our team of physiotherapists have kept you positive and have helped in a number of ways; emotionally and physically.

Thank you so much for your kind comments about them.

I hope that now you are over this particular hurdle everything goes well for you.
