"checkup following knee replacement"

About: Wansbeck Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

I attended clinic yesterday for checkup following knee replacement. Reception staff as always very friendly and polite. Clinic staff welcoming. Every part of the hospital was exceptionally clean. I have had a brilliant result from my surgery and can't speak highly enough of the skills of my surgeon.

I now walk totally unaided and most of all I am pain free.I cannot thank Wansbeck hospital enough for my care both in the recent past and ongoing treatment on the oncology day unit. To come under the catchment area of this hospital is a priviledge.

Keep up the excellant work
