"I had uni compartmental knee replacement ..."

What I liked

I had uni compartmental knee replacement on the 4 July 2007. The doctor did in my opinion a excellent job on me in a caring and professional manner.

The after care I received whilst I was in hospital was second to none from all members of staff ( including the cleaners).

The food was very good nicely presented, this is often criticed in hospitals no problem here though.

I have been home now for 11 days and can walk for about 1mile ( I have been a bad lad though haven't been using my crutches very much) I have been doing my exercises though so all goes well, I am not saying there hasn't been a bit of pain but the tablet's help mainly in bed at night.

The only other Hospital that I have been in that offers this level of care is St Michaels Hospital in Hayle, so keep up the good work!

What could be improved

The rest of the health service it should all be run in the way that this Hospital and St Michaels Hospital in Hayle used to be run ( it seems to have changed a bit since the health service took full control).
