"Ward Seven"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

Just got having had a replacement hip operation in Ward Seven, Wansbeck Hospital and cannot praise them enough. Everyone in that ward, the Surgeons, Nurses, Physios, auxiliary help and cleaners are so helpful, pleasant and kind and all are dedicated to their own particular role. Consummate professionals, every one of them. They made my stay a really happy experience and I cannot praise them enough. The food was lovely and plentiful - and they made an exceptional cup of tea. Having an operation can be an extremely daunting proposition, but these people soon put you at ease. I would highly recommend this Orthopaedic Ward. I had a hip replacement there last year and chose to go back to the same place this year. Surely that speaks for itself.
