Dear wilgus

I am sorry you had a long wait for your hip replacement and suffered a psychotic illness when you stopped your morphine. I hope you are recovering from your illness and that your hip replacement went well.

If you wish me to look into the matter further please contact Yvonne Ross our Patient Affairs Manager by calling 01698366558 with your details to allow me to investigate your outstanding concerns.

Best Wishes
