"I felt in safe hands at all times."

About: University Hospital Of Hartlepool

What I liked

all the staff were friendly and worked together to make patients feel comfortable

What could be improved

the meals were not hot by the time they reached the wards.

Anything else?

I had my right total knee replacement in William Harvey hospital Ashford on November22nd 2011 and then returned on July 3rd 2012 for left Total knee replacement both times on Kings ward 2 and went home on the 5th July. All the staff were very positive and encouraging. I had a spinal anesthetic both times and was put at ease by the whole team.

Many thanks to all.
