I have recently had a hip replacement carried out on Fotherby Ward . My surgeon was exactly like someone on the internet said. All the staff were always friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was good too. The cleanliness of the ward is outstanding. Every hospital in the country should be the same. I would especially like to say a big thank you to a particular member of staff from the theatre who spent time with me while I came round from the anaesthetic after my op.
