"Knee operation at Shepton Mallet Hospital"

About: Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre

(as the patient),

I had a knee op done at the Nuffield which was not a success. I then went to Shepton Mallet to have the operation re done. I found the care and approach infinitely better. A wonderful hospital!

Response from Lucy Nicholls, Development Officer, Somerset LINk


This story was submitted to Patient Opinion by the Somerset LINk, on behalf of a local patient who has sent us their story as part of our 'Patient Stories' project.

We are keeping a record of all stories that are sent to us, and asking providers to respond to the stories. We will be contacting Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, who run Shepton Mallet hospital, and asking them to respond to this patient's story.

Many thanks to the patient, who has taken the time to send in their experience to us. It's really great to read positive stories like this. :)

Best wishes,
