What I liked
I had a total hip replacement and pelvis reconstruction operation in Feb 2010. My consultant was amazing, visiting me everyday (sometimes twice) on the ward. The ward was extremely clean, well organised and motivated patients to get moviing and get better. The staff from sister to the wonderful cleaners were friendly, kind and professional.
The aftercare I have received has also been exceptional and the consultant makes a point of seeing their patients personally wherever possible and takes an interest in his patients welfare and aftercare as much as the operation itself.
I would recommend the hospital to friends and relatives and have had to use the hospital for various reasons since this operation and have found the same level of care and professionalism across the board.
What could be improved
My only criticisim would be the food, which when you are not feeling well can be a real disappointment .
