"Hip Replacement at Rotherham District General"

About: Rotherham Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I had my hip replacement at Rotherham District General Hospital in March.

The standard of care I received was excellent. Mr Blair, the surgeon, explained the operation to me and what would happen afterwards. The whole team, from admission to theatre staff, nurses on B.2., Physio and all others, were professional but also friendly, nothing was too much trouble.

I am now recovered and pain free, thanks to all who helped making this so.
