Response from Mary Anderson, Senior Quality Facilitator, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

Good morning and thank you for contacting Patient Opinion. I was really pleased to note that your knee replacement surgery at the end of 2010 went well and that you had good experiences at both Derriford Hospital, where you stayed for two and a half weeks, and Mount Gould Hospital. I know the teams will be delighted to read your comments and would like to thank you again for taking the time and trouble to let us know.

Best wishes
