"Excellent Care at Stanmore Hospital"

About: Surrey PCT The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (Stanmore) / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Just a year ago (December 2008) I had an operation on my back, and was in Stanmore hospital for nearly four weeks.

The care I received was excellent, and it was obvious that the staff worked as a team. I was in a room with four beds, and I enjoyed the company of the other patients - they were a lot younger that me, which at times was a challenge.

Unfortunately I had a side effect from the operation, but the hospital team were straight forward and told me what had happened - I had been warned that the operation was high risk.

The building is unusual - I think it needs to be replaced, not privatised.

A Big Thank you to all the Hospital Team.

The subsequent care I have received from East Surrey NHS has also been very caring and helpful.
