"Care after a total knee replacement."

About: Wycombe Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

On 28/09/2016 I came to Wycombe to complete a total knee replacement. The operation went well and I was very well cared for by the theatre staff an reception staff. From there I was taken for a short recovery and up to ward 12B. Whilst I was there, which turned out to be 4 days I received exemplary care, from an extremely professional and caring team of Staff Nurses and HCA's.

Their care good humour and professionalism made what could have been a painful experience a positive one, and I would commend them to the hospital as outstanding representatives of the trust and the nursing profession as a whole. Thank you all for your care and help whilst I was with you.
