What I liked
Fantastically clean. All the staff I came into contact with were very friendly, extremely patient focussed and all seemed genuinely very happy in their work. Extremely efficient working practices and genuine patient care. Fantastic experience from beginning to end - very impressive.
What could be improved
nothing as far as I'm concerned. Couldn't have been more satisfied.
Having never been in hospital for an operation and having a needle phobia makes me potentially a hospitals worst nightmare patient. My worst nightmare did come true regarding needles and anaesthetic, but this centre were brilliant and made my operation almost pleasant (if there is such a thing!!) with their care, concern and what felt like individual attention. They make sure they have the time to help with your fears and concerns and react to you as an individual, not as cattle on a conveyor belt, which larger hospitals can sometimes do. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. My other knee may require a similar operation in the future and I dread to think what will happen, given the other choices available if this center were to close or revert back to NHS. I haven't overcome my fear of hopsitals, operations and needles but I wouldn't hesitate to go back to this centre.
