What I liked
I had been refered by my GP, given a date I was suprised at how little time I had to wait before I attended the Hospital. Arriving well in time for the consultation I reported to the reception at the orthepaedic department was made feel very welcome. Sent to the Xray Department and was seen within 5 minutes of arrival, went back to the orthepaedic reception and was called in to see the consultant with in 10 minutes. I was asked into a consulting room within minutes the consultant and his assistant arrived. After a long consultation and examination I was told what would be needed to be done. I was left in the room while a letter was sent to my GP. He came back and then asked if I had any questions, the only concern I had was when the operation take place to be told 6 to 8 weeks. Very impressed with the service.
