"Good experience of complete knee replacement"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I went into Wishaw general hospital in early feb 2015, for my op on above.

After the op, I was transferred to ward 14. Here I could not fault any of the staff, from the doctors, nurses and domestic staff. There were very attentive at all times. Nothing was a burden to any of them.

They all made my 5 days stay very relaxing. If the other wards do half as much with their patients, then the NHS have nothing to worry about.

Forgot to mention the physios also.

I am pleased to hear your 5 day stay was relaxing and that you found that nothing was a burden to any of the staff. I will pass on your kind comments to the team including the physiotherapists they will be delighted to receive them.

I wish you a speedy recovery.
