"Having just had a replacement ..."

About: Newark Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Having just had a replacement hip, I was unable to walk with comfort. So when I had an appointment, upon entering the hospital I was given a wheel chail be two very nice WVS women, who asked tha Car Park attendant to take me to the ward. He refused, saying health and safety regs prevent him from doing so.
