"Visit to Orthopaedic Outpatients"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I visited the outpatients for the first time last week regarding a hip problem. The hospital is very busy but I did feel a sense of being in a well run and properly staffed hospital. I had to wait around quite a bit but I guess that is the normal when you are having xrays etc before seeing the consultant. The consultant I saw was excellent and explained everything to me very clearly and I feel confident that they will do their best to correct the problems I have. Would be interested to know how long the waiting list is for hip surgery, and also for MRI scans with an injection? Thanks for a great job Paul
