"Total Hip replacement"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

My experience was the hard pressed team at Treliske are doing a great job in what i am sure can be a very challenging and frustrating position,my operation had been cancelled a few weeks earlier and i was not really expecting that the alternative date would actually end in the operation,up until the time i was anesthetized i felt nothing was set in stone,however the operation was performed as scheduled and the after care team performed their role with professionalism and knowledge.I could have voiced lots of frustrating little annoyances during my 4 day stay ,the NHS as we are all to often made aware has some very serious issues and they do make an individual very apprehensive at times,the frustrating time awaiting discharge at the end of the treatment i feel could be improved by patients perhaps having the choice of waiting for the drugs prescribed at the hospital or making use of a local chemist,however considering the amount of patients our one major hospital has to deal with all departments deserve a pat on the back
