"Ortho surgical physio"

About: Ayr Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as a service user),

Total knee replacement operation.   Admitted Monday ,  operated Monday,   Discharged Friday.   

So much bad press re NHS Ayr Hospital,  credit where credit due.   I have had the pleasure of seeing an efficient and caring service.   All staff,  from Porters to Doctors and Housekeeping to Nurses and Physio  treated me with respect and helped me through a difficult period.  This has helped me prepare for my recuperation at home.   

I found Station 11 and all associated services first class.     Nothing was too much bother for them, despite being obviously understaffed.  The nurses did not make you feel their time was rationed.  The Physio did an amazing job getting everyone back on their feet and confident with their exercises. The tips given have helped me already.   Thank you.
