"Excellent in every aspect"

About: University Hospital Lewisham

Following total knee replacement I had the good fortune to be assigned to Linden Ward for my recovery. I cannot fault any part of my care. The staff at all levels were very careing and friendly which helps to aid recovery. I found the ward to be clean at all times. Considering the kitchen must cater for a good many people I found the food to be of a good standard with a fair choice of items on the menu.

I must commend the nursing staff who often worked very long shifts but always had a smile and showed so much compassion. When I have my other knee replaced I hope I am lucky enough to return to Linden to recover.
