"Scaphoid fracture"

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

(as the patient),

Having fractured my scaphoid at the weekend I was transferred to the uhns for a quicker appointment at the fracture clinic. From my initial presentation at reception, through to Kevin Smith, the hand surgeon, on to operation I will have had contact with well over 40 varying members of staff. Without exception every single person that I came into contact with was courteous, helpful and respectful. This includes, reception staff, nurses, radiographers, surgeons, anaesthetists, porters, basically the whole system. This ethos within the hospital will not have happened by chance. Thank you to all involved and congratulations on a great hospital
