"I wa admitted to Bournemouth General ..."

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I wa admitted to Bournemouth General Hospital 6 weeks ago for a knee replacement operation, I was very apprehensive about having this operation but I would like to say that although this is quite a painful operation the medical staff were very good at controlling my pain, just do what the nurses tell you is my advice, they know best. I found all the staff very friendly, courteous, professional and helpful, and I would like to say that I received excellent care, also the one thing that always seems to get a lot of criticism, hospital food, this was very good, the soups were excellent, this is always popular when your appetite is poor. I hope these comments will be helpful to anyone who is facing this operation.
