"Big thank you "

About: Western Infirmary/Gartnavel General / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a hip replacement in about 10 months ago and having already had my other hip replaced 3 years previously by Mr Jason Roberts was not worried about having surgery again. Everything went really well, the ward staff were superb especially Staff Nurse David who was my dedicated nurse.

The Ward was well run by Sister Dorothy and at night time Staff Nurse Elaine was always so kind and caring. The difference these operations have made to my health has been fantastic and I feel I have got my life back, so a big thank you to everyone on Ward 2B and also to Mr Roberts who performed my operations.
