"Great experience with orthopaedics and children's..."

About: Warrington Hospital

My son was operated on today by a consultant in orthopaedics to correct a broken wrist that was not healing with good alignment. (Pesky rugby league injury) The consultant was so confident, transparent and assured in their conversations with me, that I felt completely at ease in terms of my son's care. It does help that they also operated on my partner's foot a couple of years earlier and did a great job then too, so I knew my boy was in very safe hands. What really impressed me though, was the care from the nursing staff. The ward sister on B10 and the student nurse assisting her were so kind and thoughtful. They really did make the whole experience so much more comfortable and were endlessly patient, despite our myriad daft questions. The ward sister was able to juggle my son's care and their responsibilities as a mentor to the student nurse with great skill and I'm sure that they are going to graduate to be a fab nurse. They have certainly got the patience and caring nature in abundance. Many thanks to all the medical staff for making today less of a nightmare than it promised to be. Kind Regards Cat & Joe Johnson
