About: Royal Derby Hospital

after five days of visiting my husband after his knee replacement surgery I feel I must comment on the staff I encountered. Without fail everyone I met, whether on the wards or in the long long corridors, smiled at me and looked as if they were happy in their work. I have been admitted and have visited many hospitals in my 68 years and am amazed at how the Derby staff, whatever their role, went out of there way to be pleasant. The care.my husband received has been first class. A huge pat on the back is deserved by all. Thank you
