This is my first review of anything- but I feel compelled to comment as I am so grateful for the experience I had.
I cannot fault any of the treatment I received during my recent hip replacement. All the ward staff were caring, kind, observant & professional but also made me feel that they were there for me as an individual and wanted to do the job well. The coffee & toast I received after returning from theatre was the tastiest I have ever had & the rest of the food was good as well- (makes a difference I think)
It was lovely having my own room & bathroom. I have never had private healthcare & I am never likely to, but I can't see how you could pay for anything better.
it wasn't just Ward 3 that was excellent, but everyone at the pre-op stage, in the operating room (from what I remember) & in recovery.
It is my first real experience as a patient & I was worried about being dependent & needing help, but I always felt involved in my care & the decisions that were made.
I left hospital the next day & I am doing great back at home with the follow up call from the Ward to make sure all is well.
I travelled over an hour and a half to get to Hexham & it was well worth the journey.
Please pass on my gratitude to the whole team for making a scary time into a positive experience
