About: Queen Alexandra Hospital Queen Alexandra Hospital Portsmouth PO6 3LY
I have just returned home from having my right hip replaced. I met the Consultant at my first consultation and subsequently was seen by another surgeon who also performed the operation. Their compassion and expertise cannot be faulted. I am already feeling so much better than before the operation and it has only been 6 days. The pre-op care was also very good. My only slight complaint was that I had to phone the orthopaedic admissions team a couple times as I was desperate to receive the necessary paperwork before I took my mother away for a few days before the date I had been verbally given for the op. I eventually phoned again on the day before we went away and was fortunate to speak to someone who somehow managed to get everything sent to me before we left the next morning. From feeling anxious I was relieved.So appreciated.
When I was admitted tp Ward D5 until I left 3 days later all the staff who helped me were lovely:kKind, friendly and professional. I am so grateful to you all and to the NHS. Thank you.
