About: Holme Valley Memorial Hospital

(as the patient),

I was referred to Holmfirth Memorial Hospital by a Podiatrist from St Mary's Hospital in Leeds.

I saw a Podiatric Consultant there who told me that they could help me with my problem feet. Having already seen an orthopaedic Consultant, who only advised orthotics, I was amazed!

It does seem a long way to go from where I live but having had one operation - a Sesamoid shave, 5th Scarf Osteotomy & 2 IPK incisions - I am extremely delighted.

Every single person I have come in contact with at that Hospital, from Reception, HCA's, Nurses & Consultants have been so kind & considerate I can't praise them enough.

I will ensure that your feedback is shared with the team, they will be very pleased that they were able to help and support you and that you had such a positive experience here at Holme Valley.
