"I have been given a new lease of life!"

About: Kettering General Hospital

What I liked

I have just had a hip replacement. The operation went well, the staff were absolutely fantastic.

I could not fault the hospital, only that it is obvious that they need more staff. Especially in an Ortho ward, where patients need a lot of assistance for the first 24 hours after op.

I am only 43 so was up and about quite quickly, but for the older patients that is a little more difficult and they had to wait a little longer for assistance on occasion!

What could be improved

more staff
