"Achilles Tendon repair"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

Anything else?

I can't praise the team who dealt with me enough, from A&E, to the surgical and nursing staff. I waited less than 48hrs to get the surgery I needed and got a faster response from the NHS than I did privately. I'm well down the road of recovery and am making fantastic progress - in fact my physio thinks my scar is the best she's ever seen for this type of procedure and I have my full range of foot movement back. So thank you QEQM - you showed how good the NHS can be!
