"A big thank you to everyone!"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / Physiotherapy Grantham & District Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I went into Grantham hospital recently for a hip replacement. After all the usual checks and paperwork I went into theatre at 11am approx. I came out at 12: 30pm approx. , hip replaced and “stitched up”. First of all, I want to thank all the theatre staff who calmed me down and talked to me while the surgeon did his “job”. I was then taken to ward 2 to be cared for. From staff nurse Gemma, Lottie the student nurse, Claire the physio girl, Kristina the night nurse to the tea trolley girls, to the cleaners and to everyone who was tending to me 24/7.

If I was health secretary, I would give you all a 10% pay rise. I was back home on the Friday evening obviously in some pain, but as the days are going on the pain is getting easier. I was given notes, booklets and shown how to do my daily exercises. Once again a big thank you to everyone I met.

Dear Fast254,

Thank you for these kind words which at this time of the year, an extremely busy time the staff are under extra pressure, make all the difference – thank you again and I am pleased as the ward sister to hear that you had a fab experience.
