About: Glenfield Hospital Glenfield Hospital Leicester LE3 9QP
What I liked
I have, up to now, had 5 hip replacement/revision operations at Glenfield - the 6th is looming.
I have always received exemplary care from the staff.
What could be improved
More auxilliary staff available to tend to patients needs.
Food not that good.
After my last operation I feel I was sent home too soon. I have 2 flights of stairs to negotiate - staff knew this. I was assessed by the physios as being OK for stairs. That was me climbing ONE flight, but feeling weak, dizzy and nauseous. 2 flights 'almost killed me'.
3 days is not enough time to recover from a major operation and be expected to negotiate 2 flights of stairs. When I started having these ops some 15 years ago I was in for almost a fortnight.
