"I spent a fortnight in ward 35 ..."

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I spent a fortnight in ward 35 having a hip replacement. The care and attention was first class. The staff were very friendly, always cheerful, and nothing was too much trouble. I had total confidence in my treatment.

What could be improved

The weekend situation with only one theatre working is a cause for concern. I was on standby for two days, which was a bit nerve wracking
