On 17th December I was admitted to Ward 10 prior to knee replacement surgery on 18th December by the consultant and his team. All all times I was kept well informed of procedures. There were no delays and things went according to plan. I entered theatre @ 12.46 pm and was back in ward 10 , after recovery, by 2.30 pm. I have nothing but praise for the aftercare I received in ward 10 by all concerned - nurses, cleaners and catering staff were all very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. If I awoke in the middle of the night there was always someone on hand offering to "make a cup of tea,"or tidy my bed. When I was on my feet and ready to return home, I was seen by the consultant, given a good summation and fed ongoing instructions on aftercare by Physio and nurses.I was also given future appointments for suture removal and physio. As I was unable to drive and no one was available to take me, prompt transport was arranged to my home. Many thanks ... Alan Harrison.
