"Great experience"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I had a full hip replacement on Ward 15. My experience was a little like a four day holiday.

The approaches to the ward and the ward itself are very clean and cheerful even at 07: 00 in the morning.

I was made very welcome by nurses, auxilliaries and support staff.

No fuss in the ward; clean and efficient with a professional, friendly ambience.

All was explained and i was put at ease.

Surgery was a great experience and was carried out under spinal.

After care and food good.

Thanks to mr. Kamath and a very professional, happy, well-organised staff.
