"Elective orthopaedic unit"

About: Furness General Hospital

I had a full hip replacement operation in the above unit in April this year. At 74 yo I was somewhat nervous as the last time I was hospitalised was to have my tonsils out at the age of 8. The treatment I received was first class as was the accommodation and the nursing staff were most attentive during my short stay. At some time in the future my other hip will need replacing and I will have no hesitation in returning to Furness General. Many thanks to all.
