"Excellent experience"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Was admitted for knee replacement on 14th January. Although this nearly didn't go ahead because of a bed crisis I was lucky enough to be admitted and the op went ahead. From start to finish I cannot critisise the treatment I received. I was fully informed at every level and was able to make well informed decisions of my care. I was discharged after 48 hours and this was ideal for me. I have no pain just a sore leg which is only to be expected. I am able to walk confidently with minimal support. Thank you BVH for helping me towards a pain free future
