"physiotherapy and orthopaedic team were excellent"

About: Erith & District Hospital

Anything else?

After suffering a fractured pelvis and Leg from being run over, I attended the Physiotherapy clinic and worked with the team at Erith Hospital. After previously attending a private physiotherapist ( £50 a session ) and with no real progress I turned to the NHS for this treatment. The staff at Erith were extremely professional and Efficient , providing me with sessions and exercise that ultimately got me back to 100%. They also identified that I am suffering from Carpel Tunnel syndrome in both hands, and I am now booked in for operations at Queen Mary's for these. This again was excellent and the complete process from initial investigation , physio , supply of equipment , consultant review , pre-assessment and surgery planning can only be recommended. Well done to all the staff. I hope I dont have to return :) , however if i did I know I will be treated and looked after well.
