"Helpful & friendly staff, effective treatment"

About: Broomfield Hospital

Both the Physios and reception at the Walking School (leg amputee physio clinic) were very supportive during my lengthy treatment, and were very quick to involve other depts. (vascular & dermatolygy) regarding the issues with my stump. Once I got my prosthesis there guidance helped me make swift progress, at least whilst my stump was OK. I almost sorry to have been discharged from the Wed/Fri morning sessions as both staff and fellow patients made it enjoyable as well as informative - and tiring. The ambulance & volunteer amblance car drivers were all frindly and helpful, sadly the planning support behind them was often woeful. Next question is not suitable for regular outpatient visit such as mine - date given is for final session, they started in Sept '13 ! Plus Physiotherapy is not listed as a Department and there is no "Other" option !!! As I came to them via Vascular following a leg amputation I've shown this instead.
