"shoulder surgery"

About: Wrightington Hospital

I was admitted to ward 1 on 5th November for shoulder replacement surgery. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel welcome .I was informed about procedure by all the doctors involved who introduced themselves to me and I understood exactly what would happen to me. Everyone was kind and took the trouble to make me feel confident about my operation. The recovery ward staff and staff on ward 5 were attentive and caring to me and everyone else. Food nice and tea hot .Bravo and many thanks to all .

May I apologise that I have said Ward 5 at Wrightington in my response above. It was Ward 1 and I can confirm that your posting has been cascaded to the correct staff.

Kind reagrds
