About: Grantham & District Hospital

Exceptional from the moment I arrived from surgery (hip replacement). I was treated with great care by all of the orthopaedic team on Ward 2. I went in on Friday and home on Monday with a brand new hip. If you have to go into hospital opt for Grantham and if its Ward2 then you have hit the jackpot. However, there is a gremlin in the system, Hospital Transport from an outside provider. I was booked for a lift back to Lincoln at 2pm,was told they could do it at 4pm, I was still waiting at 6.30pm, and was finally picked up by a taxi at 6.40pm. This in no way is a reflection on the Ward 2 team. Perhaps the powers that be should look at that particular transport provider. Final comment. Well done the Ward2 team
