"Hospital with Hotel atmosphere"

About: Barlborough NHS Treatment Centre

My stay to have a replacement knee was extremely pleasant.The pain of the operation was controlled and I was looked after better than in some hotels in which I have stayed. Hygene is obviously paramount to everyone & all staff are happy & pleasant.I remarked to one member of staff that I hadn't met one grumpy person and they replied "you won't do, there aren't any"

Food is also extremely good so I have no hesitation in recommending anyone to have their surgery here at Barlborough.

Response from Barlborough NHS Treatment Centre

Dear Michael,

Many thanks for taking the time to post your feedback on the NHS Choices website.

We fully understand that surgery can be a daunting experience so we always try to make sure our patients are as comfortable as possible and if you like, 'enjoy' their stay in our Hospital.

It's nice to read that you compared us to a Hotel!

Take care and we all hope you make a quick recovery from your knee replacement.

With kind regards, Mandy J Milleer - PA to Steve Booker, Hospital Director and Marco La Malfa, Medical Director
