"Spinal Decompression and Fusion"

First thing to say is that the timing between consultation and admission for surgery was just 2 weeks - exceptional!

The hospital has easy access routes and ample free parking!! The reception was welcoming as were the staff. The consultation was very informative. My options were explained in plain language in an unhurried and pleasantly empathetic manner by my consultant which put me at ease and meant I was able to make an informed decision there and then on what was major surgery.

Upon being admitted for surgery, without exception, all the staff I came across whether medical or non medical were always polite, courteous and very friendly - it sort of felt you were part of 'the family'. I had a private room which was ensuite, spacious and comfortably furnished (TV was functional but could do with updating).

On the day of surgery both the visits by the consultant surgeon and the consultant anaesthetist were reassuring and informative.

Post operation care was well provided and when could eventually face some food the menu choices were immense and resembled a hotel - the food was excellent.

Staff were really accommodating of visitors with no real restrictions on times and even made them a cup of tea - what service!

I would have no hesitation recommending this hospital if you need orthopaedic treatment
