My experience started at Haigh Hall Medical Centre when I was examined by medical staff and doctors who referred me on to Eccleshill Community Hospital muscoskeletal clinic, who sent me for an x-ray.
After the x-ray I was referred to Bradford Royal Infirmary for a check up. I was seen by Mr Brew who decided to do a complete knee replacement. After a check up by a physio I was sent to ward 28 and found the ward very busy but extremely dedicated and overworked staff, from nurses to doctors. Even at busy times I found they cared well for all patients with a cheerful smile, which I found kept me calm and relaxed.
Mr Brew and his team did my knee replacement at the end of a hard day, but still made me very welcome and their professional manner helped me to relax and have a smile as I look around and thought I had been abducted by aliens.
The next day back on the ward I was looked after with dedication from the physio department and was soon on my feet and leaving the BRI.
I feel all the staff who dealt with me during my treatment and before did excellent. They worked above and beyond their duty. On leaving the hospital I was passed on to the district nurse and her students who were very professional and pleasant and changed my dressing.
I feel the only people in the wrong are the politicians who run down the NHS and don't pay the staff a decent living wage.
