"Excellent care."

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

I have recently undergone complex ankle surgery. From Preassessment to Surgical Admissions, Theatre and Anaesthetics to care on Ward 36, I received thoroughly professional care from dedicated staff. Support from physiotherapy, the plaster technicians and Home Discharge service was equally conscientious; the chaplains were thoughtful and caring.. Cleaning, catering and portering staff all took their duties seriously, I have to return for further surgery and look forward to it with every confidence after the top class care and expertise I received on this occasion.
