"Trauma & Orthopaedics"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

I was admitted to a Day Care Unit (Female) at Hillington Hospital for toe mallet toe deformity operation on 23rd April 2015. They had already prepared an ‘allergy’ name band and were preparing me ready for the operation. All the members of the Day Care Unit (Female) from my Consultant , Sister, Nurses, Anaesthetist, the Theatre porter and the Recovery nurse and Support staff were very caring, reassuring and kept me inform of my progress before and after my operation. I recovered very well and I went home happy. I was very impressed with Hillingdon Hospital and I thank you all for the hard work you do for us.
