"My hip replacement has worked ..."

About: Kettering General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My hip replacement has worked like a dream,when can I have the other joints done !The nursing staff were so kind and helpful,in a very busy ward-Ashton.They worked hard to give each patient time,and the best thing of all, restricted visiting hours with no children racing about.I felt that I had had the best of experiences in this quiet,calm, well run ward.Also praise for the endoscopy unit. Meals were very good, with plenty of choice.Praise too for the follow up physio

What could be improved

If possible keep the visiting hours short,perhaps giving visitors a ticket for either afternoon or evening,to relieve parking problems, a little more for breakfast wouldnt come amiss.

Anything else?

Thank you!
